Frescoe inside the Spanish Chapel

Sites Visited

Church of Orsanmichele

Spanish Chapel of Santa Maria Novella

The “Black Death” of 1348 has been described as the single most important event in the history of Europe. An epidemic of cyclopic dimensions, it killed off nearly one half of the population of Europe in a single year. The effects of this plague on art have been the focus of much research. We will examine the frescoes in the Spanish Chapel at Santa Maria Novella as a possible testimony of a “post black death style”, as well as the evolution of Gothic to Renaissance-style art at the church of Orsanmichele.
