Art history ruminations from a waterfowl. Honk honk.

This fresco resides in the San Miniato al Monte Sachristy, Florence. Aretino completed a series of works here depicting stories from the life of St. Benedict, a saint closely associated with exorcisms as is evident above. Aretino was a follower of the revolutionary Giotto di Bondone and his influence can be seen in the rounded tube-like construction of the figures.
