LIPPI, Fra Filippo
(b. 1406, Firenze, d. 1469, Spoleto)

View of the fresco cycle

Duomo, Prato

The picture shows a view of the fresco cycle with scenes from the legends of Sts Stephen and John the Baptist. The vault frescoes represent the Four Evangelists. The stained-glass window, with standing saints and the Assumption of the Virgin, was executed by Ser Lorenzo da Pelago, based probably on designs by Filippo Lippi.

On the right is located the Bocchineri family chapel (Chapel of Our Lady of the Assumption) with frescoes by Paolo Uccello.
