Notes

Summary:
Giotto is regarded as the founder of the central tradition of Western painting because his work broke free from the stylizations of Byzantine art, introducing new ideals of naturalism and creating a convincing sense of pictorial space. The decoration of the Peruzzi Chapel in Santa Croce was probably carried out not long after the works in the Lower Curch at Assisi. Unfortunately, the Peruzzi cycle was extensively repainted, and what remains of the original frescoes, revealed during a recent restoration is in a bad state of preservation. There is still much controversy over the dating of this chapel and that of the Bardi family adjoining it, the probable date is between 1315-1320.
