LORENZETTI, Ambrogio
(b. ca. 1290, Siena, d. 1348, Siena)

Effects of Good Government on the City Life (detail)

1338-40
Fresco
Palazzo Pubblico, Siena

This detail of the fresco depicts a street scene in Siena. In the street itself are laden asses, a goat-herd bringing his flock into town and two countrywomen with poultry and baskets. Behind them are a shoe-shop, a teacher with a class of children, a spice dealer and a tailor cutting cloth on a sloping table.
