Moses's Testament and Death (detail)

Cappella Sistina, Vatican

The painting is for the most part the work of Bartolomeo della Gatta. But, amidst the numerous figures that populate the scene, there are some whose anatomical description is full of energy and who convey powerful emotions: the young nude seated in the centre, for example. Luca Signorelli's hand appears quite obvious in this detail, and in others as well.
