Madonna and Child with Angels

Giovanni da Bologna

This work shows the Madonna of Humility, with the Madonna sitting on an area that is both naturalistic, but also still symbolic – a spherical surface on which the Virgin is seated. Even though its gold ground places the work in the 14th century the movement towards naturalism is apparent. Just as Ambrogio Lorenzetti is more natural than San Verano, Giovanni da Bologna pioneers a trend that will continue for centuries.
