New Fresco Shown in Fogg

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A portion of a fresco painting which has not previously been on exhibition has recently been hung in the gallery of the Fogg Art Museum. The picture is divided into two panels by borders painted in imitation of marble inlay. In the upper panel is a figure of God the Father, in the character of Judge, and in the lower panel is shown the Death of a Bishop. Below is painted a fringed curtain with embroidered border. The fresco is probably the work of the North Italian school, and shows a relation to the work of the fourteenth century painter, Tommaso da Modena. The painting was formerly in the Bardini collection and is fairly well preserved.
