Notes

Summary:
Giotto's altar-piece illustrates four episodes in the life of the holy founder of the mendicant order of the Franciscans (1182-1226). With some variants, the compositions are drawn from frescoes executed around 1290 (?) by the young Giotto in the upper Basilica of Assisi. Signed along the lower edge of the frame, the Louvre panel is a decisive element in the attribution of the Assisi cycle to Giotto, which was once contested. He was the first painter in the history of Western art to set figures within a coherent space and give them structural consistency.
