Art & Architecture
A 14th C. fresco cycle in the Oratorio of San Giorgio in Padua by Altichiero da Zevio
(this search brings up several panels in the church, including three of the four Saint Lucy panels). You may find the fourth panel here. This video gives a nice tour of the church. Watch out for Saint Lucy at 3:44, 4:03 and 4:29 and 5:10 and 5:32, but watch the whole video to get a fuller sense of the space and extensive decoration of this little known, but incredible church, with scenes from the life of Christ, as well as from the lives of Saint George and Saint Catherine of Alexandria. You may read a scholarly article on the frescoes here.
