Last Judgment (detail)

c. 1300
Santa Cecilia in Trastevere, Rome

To Christ's right the Virgin stands on a rectangular wooden pedestal; she is dressed in a blue garment under a violet cloak and is turned toward Christ in prayer. Corresponding to her on the other side is John the Baptist, who is wearing a a violet garment under a brown, fur-lined cloak. Behind the Virgin and John are the apostles, each sitting ion a wooden throne; they can be recognized by the names inscribed on the footrests of their thrones and by their attributes.

Cavallini's illumination still does not originate from one identifiable source, but it plays richly on the drapery of the seated apostles and the faces.
