The Resurrection

Perugino (Pietro di Cristoforo Vannucci) Italian

Not on view

This exceptionally well-preserved picture and four others in the Art Institute of Chicago formed the base (predella) of an altarpiece—possibly the large Crucifixion in the church of Sant'Agostino, Siena. In 1502 a contract was signed with Perugino, who had been recommended as "the best painter in Italy." An attractive feature of the present picture is the feigned frame lit from the left.
