Brancacci Chapel

Brancacci Chapel

Artists Masaccio, Masolino, Filippino Lippi

Date ca. 1425

Movement Italian Renaissance

Located at Santa Maria del Carmine, Florence

 

This chapel was commissioned by Felice Brancacci. While it was begun by Masaccio and Masolino, it was later completed by Filippino Lippi. Note Masolino’s Temptation in the upper-right wall of the chapel—his Adam and Eve are presented as serene nudes in diffuse light, a sharp contrast to pair presented by Masaccio in The Expulsion from Paradise.
