7a. Finding of the True Cross (detail)

San Francesco, Arezzo

The group on the left side is closed by the image of the peasant resting wearily on his spade, seen in left profile. He wears an intensely black woolen jacket, left open over an ample white blouse, beneath which appear his muscular legs, nude as far as the knees, as he has rolled down his stockings to work more comfortably. His beret is white and stands out in contrast against the black hair and thick beard.
