1. Dante Alighieri (1499-1502), detail. Fresco. Chapel of San Brizio, Duomo, Orvieto. Luca Signorelli (Italian, 1450-1523).

    The contract to paint the two remaining sections of the ceiling of the Chapel of San Brizio refers to Signorelli as the artist who had painted ‘multas pulcherrimas picturas in diversis civitatibus et presentim Senis’ (many beautiful paintings in different cities and especially in Siena).

    Also, he painted frescoes on the side walls. Although the basic subject would have been planned in accordance with the Cathedral’s administrators and theologians, the design and specifics were the product of Signorelli’s fertile imagination.
