Can anyone identify the artist, title, and location of this artwork? (It's a cropping of a larger work, and it may be a version of the Last Judgement, that's all I know....)

It tooks some googling, but Giulio Romano is the artist you're looking for. It's called "The Fall of the Gigants". The link claims that it's part of a private collection, so it's not clear where it can be found.

It's Romano's trompe l'oeil 'Fall of the Giants' at the Palazzo del Te in Mantua.

I'm not entirely sure, but it looks like it's painted on a dome? I don't think it's the famous last judgement from il duomo in Florence. Sorry I can't be more help, but maybe that will jog someone else's memory.

Guess I should have previewed first. I'm glad other people found it, since I couldn't.
