Madonna and Child with Saints

Lorenzo Veneziano

This small polyptych shows how the tradition of bizantine painting still persisted in venice in the second half of the 14th century. fortunately the piece still has its original woodwork with gothic carvings. At the centre is the Virgin and Child surrounded by angel musicians in a precious throne. The altarpiece was probably in the convent of Santa Maria della Celestia in Venice and possibly intended for private devotion of a nun, as it is rather small for a church.
