"The Raising of the Son of Theophilus" by Masaccio/Filippino Lippi

Located in the Brancacci Chapel in Santa Maria del Carmine in Florence, Italy, the fresco of “The Raising of the Son of Theophilus” was begun by Masaccio in the 1420s but left unfinished. It was only a half century later that Filippino Lippi, the son of a Carmelite priest who was stationed at the church, completed it. The scene depicts St. Peter’s miraculous raising from the dead of the son of the prefect of Heliopolis who had been dead for 14 days. At the far right of the fresco are a series of celebrity portraits including Brunelleschi, Masolino, Alberti and a self-portrait of Masaccio. Buona visione!
