Did you know?

This panel has been trimmed slightly at the bottom, cutting off the scene.


This panel was probably part of a small altarpiece of private devotion. The artist was active in Florence and Siena following the Black Death, which began in the late 1340s. His works, like others created during that troubled time, are charged with emotion.
