Ebook format Pdf readable on these devices:
This article proposes various questions on possible characteristics of works of art made specifically for the female branch of the Franciscan Observance. Several peculiarities of the frescoes (some of which are unpublished) in the Santa Maria delle Grazie nunnery – which is known as Santa Clara and was built from the 1470s by reusing and adapting Cistercian structures – are presented. Studies of a wooden Crucifix and of a series of panels depicting Scenes from the Passion of Christ are brought to attention, putting forward the hypothesis that they may have been made for the Santa Clara nuns.
