Masaccio's Tribute Money is part of a fresco series of ca. 1427 in the Brancacci Chapel of the church of Santa Maria della Carmine in Florence. The Biblical story referenced by Masaccio's Tribute Money is meant to teach the legitimacy of paying taxes.
Also noteworthy in Masaccio's Tribute Money is the innovative technique of the use of a single light source in this fresco series. Masaccio's Tribute Money and Expulsion from Paradise are considered to be his masterpieces.
