Madonna and Child with Angels and saints (Gualdo Tadino Polyptych)

Giovanni Angelo d'Antonio da Bolognola

This group is the result of a 19th century reassembly of panels from two different polyptychs, as we can tell from the fact that the light illuminating the upper and lower parts comes from opposite directions. The panels all reveal the same luminous brushwork, and the artist’s interest in conveying measured space through the shadows cast by figures and objects and his attention to details communicating a sense of tenderness, such as the clasped hands of Virgin and the Christ Child.
