Oratory of San Bernardino: Overall view of the facade
Between 1457 and 1461 Agostino was working on the façade of the oratory of S Bernardino, Perugia. Although the architectural framework of the façade recalls Alberti's design for S Francesco, the sculpture, originally highly polychromed, is rich and intricate, emphasizing line and movement. Above a double door framed by reliefs of angels, a high tympanum contains a relief of St. Bernardino in Glory. God the Father appears in the upper pediment, and four aedicules contain statues.
