Last Judgment (detail)

c. 1300
Santa Cecilia in Trastevere, Rome

Angels, whose bright, colourful feathers stand out against the dark blue ground of the fresco, frame the mandorla. 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.
