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

Jacob's Dream (fragment)

c. 1300
Santa Cecilia in Trastevere, Rome

Not until 1900, during restoration work in the church, did large sections of the old fresco decoration come to light again. The middle register of a depiction of the Last Judgment on the west wall of the basilica, fragments of the fresco of the Annunciation on the north wall, and two scenes from the story of Jacob on the south wall were uncovered. It is assumed that there were cycles of the Old and New Testament, respectively, on facing walls of the nave.

The fragment of Jacob's Dream is on the south wall of the nave.
