Piero di Puccio’s Christian Macrocosm and Genesis cycle (1389)

In 1389, Pietro di Puccio, an artist from Orvieto, receives the commission by Parasone Grasso, head of the Opera del Duomo (1384-90), to paint the first murals in the north gallery. Over the next two years Puccio works on a depiction of the Christian macrocosm and three pictures of a Genesis cycle. He leaves this project unfinished when he returns to Orvieto in 1391.
