Hand painted reproductions of this painting on fresco is becoming popular for a reason. Everybody wants a piece of cake of the original work by Paolo Uccelo. Not fakes, but mere reproductions, hand-made, and in oil. It is a public collection, and I hope to add it to mine. The historic painting is one of the oldest among those in Florence, and you may not be able to find it in the most delectable condition – owing to various factors such as weathering and weakening of construction at Green Cloister at Santa Maria Novella in Florence. The fantastic collection of works by Uccelo continues to thrill me – not just because of historic value, but the inherent story about the painter’s background, and how they […]

Mary’s life is a noble one, or so believed Uccelo. Overlooking controversies like the Mary’s marital role or Jesus’ marriage is the imposing fresco, done by master-painter who has made it very easy for us to realize the importance of Jesus in times of constant fear, famine and war. Uccelo lived in the early medieval period, in which the masses had none to look forward to, but a hero to look back upon, only in the hope of the peace he wished would prevail. While Uccelo has been an avid presenter of biblical stories in fresco, he has also been one of the most respected personalities in his genre – which has evidently bolted through the next few centuries like rock n roll! The adolescent […]

Being one of the most important biblical events, “the birth of the virgin”, or the birth of Mary, is a source of inspiration for many artists in history and contemporary times. Uccelo’s fascination with the Christian stories, and those, which marked his times, often resonate with each other in his Italian old-town frescoes. Here, the birth of the virgin is momentous, in which the kin folk and everyone else around are all up and about to make things easier, better and happier. Notice the lady swishing down the steps with the needed items, and the well-attended room in which The Virgin is getting blessed by almost everybody. It is easy to imagine why Uccelo’s imagination about the birth of Mary coincides and shows up as […]

One of Paolo Uccelo’s works in fresco is perhaps the biggest St. Stephen moment, and probably the most inspiring biblical story by the medieval painter. An Italian masterpiece with historical significance is always an attraction for someone interested in European art. The martyrdom of St. Stephen is an inspiring event, which can be seen in contemporary sense as someone sacrificing himself to protect free speech rights under a dictatorship. St. Stephen’s legend spread further and wider than Jesus, and his popularity led to the first trans-continental presence of Christianity. Stephen was in many ways more popular than Jesus, and Uccelo is one of the main protagonists in popularizing the martyrdom, and what it had to contribute to Christian living. Much like a good disciple of […]

No matter how tragic Noah’s story, it is world-shattering enough for biblical painter Paolo Uccelo to have left the legend on a 17 by 9 feet fresco – which actually took Uccelo 4 years to paint in mid-15th century Italy. Noah, or the father of modern humans, is an age-old character, in Christian, Jew as well as Muslim history. According to many historians, the events surrounding Noah’s life, the flood and everything about his drunkenness took place around the 12000-10000 BC period. During this phase, many parts, including India, Antarctic Africa and South America were forced to change their coastlines owing to massive and life-taking floods over centuries. However, Noah could have also lived during the next great flood, which primarily affected northern Africa, ancient […]
