BARONZIO, Giovanni
(active ca. 1326, d. ca. 1362, Rimini)

Centrepiece of a Polyptych

c. 1345
Tempera on panel, 58 x 31 cm
Liechtenstein Museum, Vienna

This panel was presumably commissioned by an associate of the Franciscan order, as suggested by the choice of Franciscan saints in the lowest section of the panel. The upper and middle sections depict the Adoration of the Magi, and the Crucifixion, respectively. The Crucifixion is clearly modelled on Giotto, and in fact the panel was once attributed to Giotto.
