Attributed to Lorenzo Veneziano: 'The Madonna of Humility with Saints Mark and John'
This work is made up of three paintings with their framework on one panel; the Madonna of Humility is flanked by Saints Mark and John the Baptist.

The Madonna of Humility, seated on the ground, has a crescent moon at her feet and stars above her. Roundels representing the sun are on her robe. These refer to the Woman of the Apocalypse in the New Testament (Revelation 12: 1) with whom the Virgin was identified.

This was probably painted in the 1360s as an independent, private devotional work.
