PIETRO DI GIOVANNI D'AMBROGIO
(b. ca. 1410, Siena, d. 1449, Siena)

Reconstruction of a polyptych

1430s
Tempera on panel
Various museums

According to the reconstruction accepted by many scholars, the now dismembered altarpiece consisted of a Virgin and Child in the centre (Brooklyn Museum, New York), St Augustin (Lindenau-Museum, Altenburg) at the left, and probably St Nicholas (lost) at the right. The three predella panels are the Departure of St Augustin (Staatliche Museen, Berlin), the Entry of Christ to Jerusalem (Pinacoteca Stuard, Parma), and the Birth of St Nicholas (Kunstmuseum, Basel).
