Attributed to Agnolo Gaddi: 'The Coronation of the Virgin'

Explore the paintings

This was probably the central panel of an altarpiece, possibly from the church of San Giovanni de' Fieri near Pisa. It probably dates from the 1380s.

Agnolo Gaddi, son of the painter Taddeo Gaddi, worked chiefly in Florence where the Coronation of the Virgin was an extremely popular subject for an altarpiece (see also 'The Coronation of the Virgin' by Jacopo di Cione and that by Lorenzo Monaco).

The pink in Christ's robes and in the robes of the Virgin may have originally been richer and have faded with time. Many of the old retouchings have become discoloured.
