by DR. PETER MURRAY
Piero della Francesca is usually admired for his calm classicism. the spacing and proportions of his figures and his pale, cool colours. The strong symbolic meaning which his pictures had for his contemporaries is often overlooked. Dr. Murray, Lecturer in Art History at the Courtauld Institute, London, suggests a new interpretation of his Frescoes in Arezzo. depicting the Legend of the Cross, and the Flagellation in the Ducal Palace at Urbino.
