Coronation of the Virgin

Niccolò di Pietro (Nicolaus Paradixi)

The Venetian artist Nicolò di Pietro is a characteristically late Gothic painter, which can be seen above all in the late Gothic architecture of the carved altarpiece.  This panel shows the Coronation of the Virgin, with God the Father behind the couple, and, at the bottom, the figures of the donors. It is very naturalistic, and there is already a hint of portraiture in the donor figures, but it is still a naturalism of detail that does not combine into a single naturalistic image. the panel has a rich frame adorned with pinnacles and carvings. The small dimensions suggest a collocation in a minor altar, or to be used for private devotion. The can be dated around 1394-1404, and came to Pinacoteca as a donation from the Amici di Brera Association in memory of Fernanda Wittgens.
