Christ's Entry into Jerusalem

Fresco, width 230 cm
Basilica of Santa Casa, Loreto

The wall area below the vaulting is conceived as an open arcade, the deep, coffered faces of its arches rendered in dramatic perspective. Through these wide arches, seen from below, one could at one time look out at seven scenes from the Passion, only one of which, Christ's entry into Jerusalem, survives.
