Description

A detailed view of Ospedale Maggiore's exterior facade. The image focuses on the ground level and a portion of the upper level. The ground level contains a blind arcade of round arches. In the spandrels of the arches is a high relief sculpture that projects outward, away from the wall. Beneath the arcade, are mullioned windows, which are enclosed by a pointed arch. Between the pointed arch and the mullioned windows is a high relief sculpture. This design is then mimicked on the second level.
