View of the Chapel

1425-31
Fresco
Castiglione Chapel, San Clemente, Rome

The picture presents a view into the chapel from the south side aisle of the church. Above the arch on the entry wall the Annunciation with God the Father in a medallion can be seen. The inner face of the arch contains apostle portraits. On the left pillar (roughly twice as large as the one on the right) a portrayal of a huge St Christopher wading through the water, Christ on his shoulder, and gazing up at the Annunciation above, is presented. On the wall to the right, outside the chapel, the sinopia of the Beheading of St Catherine, exposed in 1952, is hung.
