MAZZIERE, Agnolo di Domenico
(b. ca. 1466, Firenze, d. 1513, Firenze)

Virgin and Child

Tempera on panel, 82 x 66 cm
Private collection

This panel belonged to the same altarpiece as two other surviving fragments: Sts Leonard and James the Greater in the Musée de Petit Palais, Avignon, and Sts Bartholomew and Julian the Hospitaler in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Not only does the scale of the figures correspond in all three panels, but the architecture which serves as a backdrop appears to be continuous and has certain recurrent features.
