Stigmates de saint François Basilique d'Assise 1300

Stigmatization of St Francis
Giotto, 1297-99
Fresco, 270 x 230


The four scenes in the first bay of the left wall deal with the last events in the saint's life, and are among the most fascinating in the cycle. In the Stigmatization of St Francis, the rocks take on an almost phosphorescent luminosity on what is the darkest wall in the church.
