Panels from an altarpiece

Tempera on panel, 142 x 76 cm (central), 127 x 39 cm (each side)
Museum of Art, Philadelphia

The panels depict St Bonaventure and St John the Baptist with Ludovico Euffreducci (left); Enthroned Virgin and Child with Angels (centre); St Francis of Assisi and St Louis of Toulouse (right).

These are the principal panels of a large altarpiece made for the Euffreducci family's chapel in the church of San Francesco in Fermo. Originally the altarpiece consisted of several tiers that were placed in a single frame. The present three frames date to the late 1800s.
