Frescoes in the Cappella Brancacci (right view)

Santa Maria del Carmine, Florence

Masaccio's frescoes for the Brancacci Chapel in Florence's Santa Maria del Carmine mark a milestone in the history of wall painting. They enhance Giottesque traditions of naturalism with new vitality, not merely on their formal properties of space and volume, but also in the psychological intensity that permeates the narrative.

The following frescoes can be seen in this view:

Temptation (Masolino)

Healing of the Cripple and Raising of Tabitha (Masolino)

Baptism of the Neophytes (Masaccio)

Distribution of Alms and Death of Ananias (Masaccio)

Disputation with Simon Magus and Crucifixion of St Peter (Filippino Lippi)

Peter Being Freed from Prison (Filippino Lippi)
