Scenes from the Life of St John the Evangelist: 2. Raising of Drusiana (detail)

c. 1315
Fresco
Peruzzi Chapel, Santa Croce, Florence

We can admire the single well-preserved fragment in the Chapel, the hand of St John the Evangelist to the scene where he resuscitates Drusiana. It is a work of such strength that we think of Masaccio.
