Assumption of the Virgin

Alvise Vivarini

This panel, in which we see the apostles watching the Virgin Mary ascending to heaven, is the work of relatively young Alvise Vivarini, the son of one of the members of the workshop Vivarini that produced the Praglia Polyptych in Room 4. The Vivarini family, along with the Bellini family, was one of the main families of painters in 15th century Venice, and they were often rivals. The workshop of the Vivarini is headquartered on the island of Murano.
