Giotto di Bondone

Giotto’s frescoes developed around three main themes: the life of Joachim and Anne, the life of Mary and the life and death of Christ. A series of panels illustrates the allegories of the Vices and Virtues. The works include the Presentation of Mary at the Temple of Jerusalem, the Adoration of the Magi and the Expulsion of the Money Changers from the Temple. Scenes from the Last Judgement are also reproduced.

The works produced by Giotto in the Scrovegni Chapel heralded an artistic revolution that developed throughout the 14th century and had an enormous influence on subsequent eras.
