Saint Lawrence

Bernardo Daddi

Bernardo Daddi led a flourishing Florentine workshop with a large output, unlike those of Ambrogio Lorenzetti or Giovanni da milano, whose workshops produced far less. This work is a fragment where the gold background has been scraped off at a time when the painting itself was not considered interesting – the gold was far more precious and removed to be reused or sold. Fortunately they did not remove the painted surface as well.
