When Venetian artists began to break away from the grip of Byzantium, Antonio Veneziano was among the first to lead the way. He was popular in Siena, Florence, and Pisa, all gave him important commissions. The panel, part of a polyptych and representing St James the Great, shows the artist at his best.
