(b. ca. 1250, Roma, d. 1330, Roma)

Last Judgment (detail)

c. 1300
Santa Cecilia in Trastevere, Rome

Cavallini worked together with the sculptor Arnolfo di Cambio on the decoration of the Santa Cecilia in Trastevere. The influence of sculptures on the Last Judgment, the masterpiece of Cavallini, can be observed in the modelling of the faces and hands, in the draperies and in the solidity of the whole comoposition. The condition of the fresco is rather precarious due to the humidity and the atmospheric variations.
