"The Tribute Money" Masaccio

"The Tribute Money" was painted by Masaccio at Santo Maria Del Carmine in 1427, using oil paint on a stretched canvas.  Masaccio, born Tommaso di Ser Giovanni di Simone, was the first great Italian painter of the Quattrocento period of the Italian Renaissance.  I chose this painting because not only is it wonderfully done, it also portrays a story.  As the other people argue you can see two others off to the side, which shows them striking a deal.
