  Virgin with Child - Pietro Lorenzetti
by pigletsmom
 
 

Another contemporary of Giotto who worked on the lower chapel was Pietro Lorenzetti. He worked in the medieval gothic style of painting, and was very in demand during his lifetime. His panels in the lower chapel are of the life of Christ and are quite delicate and beautiful.

Address: Lower Chapel of San Francesco - Towards the back
