Two of the cycles of paintings which decorated the church of the Incoronata are attributed to painter Robert of Oderisio, one of the greatest Neapolitan painters of Giotto’s school during the fourteenth century. They cover the walls and the vault of the first bay of the nave and despite belonging to the same hand, they should be dated to different times. The time spans assigned to the frescoes vary widely: some scholars position them with the certainty in the second half of the century, and probably even after 1370; prior suggestions, instead, reckoned the "Biblical stories of Joseph the Jew and Moses", on the walls, dated back to the years 1340-1343, while the later cycle on the vault of "The Seven Sacraments and the Triumph of the Church", could be dated to the years 1352-1354: it would therefore consist of a pictorial complex relatively close to the years of Giotto in Naples and still very tied to his example and his models
