"The Kiss of Judas" by Giotto di Bondone
Arguably the most famous image from the Scrovegni chapel frescoes, the Kiss of Judas by Giotto (1305) captures the pinnacle moment in the Passion of Christ. With movie-like intensity, Giotto captures both the movement and chaotic emotions of the crowd. The stand-out detail of the work, the actual kiss between Jesus and Judas, has inspired artists for years in many forms of visual media such as painting, sculpture, film, and television.
