Fra Angelico painted several Last Judgment altarpieces, and a portion of one in fresco. 

 A Last Judgment is generally a complex work.  

1: Christ appears at its center, usually in a judging posture, often making a judging gesture. 

2: Angels:  Christ is usually surrounded by angels.  Angels also appear in other parts of the painting.  

[Groups pf people, often with angels:  

3:  Old Testament prophets;

4:  Mary and various saints;

[2 groups of people who have already been judged:

5: People being led to, or already in, Paradise, accompanied by angels;

6: People being led to, or already in, Hell, accompanied by devils;  

7:  People awaiting judgment.
