The work describes the frescoes in the Brancacci chapel in the church of Sta Maria del Carmine, Florence; which were painted by Masaccio and Masolino ca. 1425-8, and completed by Filippino Lippi in the late 1480s. The frescoes consist of twelve images of Biblical narratives, two showing the story of Adam and Eve and their expulsion from paradise as related in Genesis, the rest showing actions of the Apostles Peter and Paul as related in the Acts of the Apostles.
