GIOVANNI DA MILANO
(active 1350-69, Milano, Firenze)

Expulsion of Joachim from the Temple (north wall, detail)

1365
Fresco
Rinuccini Chapel, Santa Croce, Florence

A serene narrative tone is preserved throughout this scene, all of the action has a gentle tone, rather than a note of tension, and even the act of expulsion, depicted in the centre, is deprived of its severity.
