This small portable triptych is one of the 14th-century Florentine painter Bernardo Daddi’s finest works. It glitters with gold and bright colours. Designed for private devotion, it presents a narrative of Christian redemption. Viewers would have opened the shutters, painted with the Annunciation, Christ’s Nativity and Crucifixion, to reveal the Virgin Mary and Christ Child seated on a throne, surrounded by saints.
