Indeed, Filippino Lippi's portrait of Piero del Pugliesi, painted in the middle of the Raising of the Son of Theophilus and Saint Peter Enthroned scene during the latter part of the fifteenth century, itself seems to have been defaced, judging by the severe scratching that mars his face but no other adjacent area.
For example, the Nino Pisano and an anonymous painter, Crucifixion with Mary and John (1365), Filippino Lippi and Benedetto da Maiano's reconstructed Bernardi Polyptich (1482/83), and Pontormo's Archangel Michael and John the Evangelist once surrounding a now-lost central sculpture (1519) suggest not only the beauty of original projects, but also the nexus of theoretical concerns discussed at the time.

Ahl situates the chapel within the devotional, artistic, and patronal ambience of Santa Maria del Carmine, discussing the church's history and the commission of the frescoes, probably completed by Filippino Lippi. Masaccio's Trinity, painted in Santa Maria Novella in 1424, is the subject of the theological study, "Masaccio's Trinity: Theological, Social and Civic Meanings," by Timothy Verdon, who, after tracing the iconography and interpretive history of the theme, illustrates the meanings of the Trinity in Catholic thought.
(20.) For an explanation of the new emphasis on Mary's role as intercessor for human grace in the fifteenth century, integrated by Filippino Lippi into his Carafa Annunciation, see Geiger (1981, 64, 66).
