Pinacoteca di Brera Informazioni

Madonna and Child

Ambrogio Lorenzetti

This panel is already modern, as witnessed by the Christ child, still bound tightly as a mummy, but struggling with a certain naturalness, very different to the Byzantine world shown by the panel of The Master of San Verano in the same room. The panel has suffered, so that we see the colour of the underlying layer of preparation, especially on the face of the Madonna. Nevertheless, what remain is the ruin of a masterpiece of italian painting from the first half of the 14th century.
