Panel paintings: Miscellaneous panels
by GIOTTO

The panel paintings executed around 1300 show an intensity of gaze of the figures which is common to all. Also common to the panel paintings is the visible effort made by the artist to achieve a naturalness, a new, more refined quality of painting, and a logically consistent depiction of space.

The later panel described as the Ognissanti Madonna after the church in which it was originally installed, has the same strength of representation as the frescoes at Padua.
