Fresco of Judas and Jesus by Cimabue or Torriti?

(b. ca. 1240, Firenze, d. ca. 1302, Firenze)
Several frescoes in the upper church of San Francesco are attributed to Cimabue. The attribution of this fresco, located on the left wall of the church, is doubtful. Traditionally it was attributed to Cavallini. Other assumptions are that it was executed under the supervision of Cimabue, or it is the work of an unknown master strongly influenced by Cimabue, Cavallini and Torriti.
