DADDI, Bernardo
(b. ca. 1280, Firenze, d. 1348, Firenze)

The Coronation of the Virgin

c. 1345
Tempera on wood, 186 x 270 cm
Galleria dell'Accademia, Florence

This altarpiece came from the Santa Maria Novella, Florence. Mary's gesture of drawing her mantle around her, with the fabric held between her fingers, seems to have been an invention of Daddi's.
