Back panels of the Maestą (upper row, scenes 14-26)
by DUCCIO di Buoninsegna

The middle levels of the reverse side of the Maestą contain 26 scenes from the story of Christ's Passion. Taken together, they make up the most comprehensive Passion cycle to survive. Stories of all four Gospels formed the basis of Duccio's pictures. The cycle began at the bottom left and ended at the top right, proceeding from left to right first on the lower row and then on the upper.
