DOMENICO VENEZIANO
(b. ca. 1410, Venezia ?, d. 1461, Firenze ?)

The Madonna and Child with Saints (detail)

c. 1445
Tempera on wood
Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence

Each of the figures is framed by an arch or segment of an arch in the loggia behind; the Virgin, as expected, is given the most elaborate space. The monumental Virgin and Child are descendants of Masaccio's figures from his Pisa Altarpiece.
