Catalogue Note

An interesting project and a working drawing for the architecture of a chapel devoted to the Crucifixion. The handling of the two angels seated on the architrave above the niche, holding symbols of the Passion, indicates that this could be the work of an artist active in Florence, possibly in the first half of the century.
