QUERCIA, Jacopo della
(b. ca. 1367, Quercia Grossa, d. 1438, Siena)

Left reliefs on the portal: 4. Expulsion from Paradise

Istrian stone, 99 x 92 cm (with frame)
San Petronio, Bologna

The Expulsion relief on the main portal derives from Quercia's own relief on the Fonte Gaia, but the figures have become more muscular and tense, as if to compensate for the greater distance between this work and an hypothetical viewer looking at the whole door.
