QUERCIA, Jacopo della
(b. ca. 1367, Quercia Grossa, d. 1438, Siena)

Virgin with Saints

Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, Siena

The general sophistication of the Annunciation group at San Gimignano suggests that Jacopo was no novice at working in wood, which has led scholars to attribute a number of other wood sculptures to him. The most widely accepted attributions are: a Virgin with Saints from San Martino (1423-25; Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, Siena); a Virgin and Child (c. 1430; Musée du Louvre, Paris) and a St John the Baptist (c. 1430; San Giovanni, Siena).

The picture shows the Virgin and Child with Sts John the Evangelist, John the Baptist, Bartholomew, and Anthony Abate.
