Chiostro dello Scalzo

Via Cavour, 69 (Florence)


The atrium of the Compagnia dei Disciplinati di San Giovanni Battista or the passion of Christ, said the Barefoot because her brother carrying the cross during the processions used to go barefoot, is entirely frescoed by scenes from the life of the Baptist performed by Andrea del Sarto. The intervention of Andrea del Sarto exemplifies the artist's painting career, covering the span of his short career. Begun in 1509-10, was discontinued in 1517 for his departure for France, allowing participation by Franciabigio in two scenes. Then it was resumed and completed by Andrea in 1526 a few years before his death.
