FRANCESCO DI GIORGIO MARTINI
(b. 1439, Siena, d. 1502, Siena)

The Disrobing of Christ

c. 1501
Panel, 217 x 295 cm
Pinacoteca Nazionale, Siena

The provenance of the altarpiece is not known. This curious "pastiche" was probably made after the death of Francesco by his former collaborators. The principal characters (Christ, the Madonna and St Joseph) are probably from Francesco's hand.
