San Domenico, Arezzo
History and Description
Above the exterior portal entrance is a much dilapidated fresco painted by Agnolo di Lorentino. On the interior wall of the facade, are late 14th-century frescoes depicting Life of Saints Phillip, James the Minor, and Catherine (1395-1400) by Spinello Aretino. Also on this wall, Spinello’s son, Parri di Spinello painted the Crucifixion and Three Saints.
The Dragomanni chapel, built from the 14th century, has an altar by Giovanni di Francesco (1368) and frescoes of ‘’Jesus among the Doctors" by Gregorio and Donato di Arezzo. The triptych of ‘’St Michael archangel and Domenic and Paul’’ is attributed to the Maestro del Vescovado. A stone statue of the "Madonna and child" once stood in one of the gates of the city.
