(b. ca. 1436, Scardone, d. 1504, Sebenico)

Virgin and Child Enthroned

Oil on canvas transferred from panel, 81 x 57 cm
Staatliche Museen, Berlin

This painting was originally the central section of a triptych. The wings of this altar (now in Padua's cathedral) show four Franciscan saints. Schiavone's signature appears on a little piece of paper (a cartellino) lower right. The putti flanking the throne are Donatellesque, reminiscent of those sculpted for the Santo's High Altar.
