The Cambridge Altarpiece
by SIMONE MARTINI

The polyptych mentioned by Vasari was painted around 1320-25 for the church of Sant'Agostino in San Gimignano. For a long time it was thought that this polyptych had been destroyed but recently a group of scholars have reconstructed its original appearance and traced the various pieces in several museums and collections throughout the world.
