    A detail of the 1535 second version of 'Expulsion of the Rebel Angels' by Beccafumi - the first had too many nudes, apparently. Pure Sienese mannerism - look at the colour gradations in God's robe!
    San Niccolo al Carmine, Siena.

      Ah yes that is a lovely one, I think I remember going to Siena in 1986, alas without the sort of cameras we are used to now. Good detail.
