Madonna enthroned with Saints and angels

Jacopo del Casentino1342/1350



There are saints and angels standing on either side of the throne of the Virgin and Child. John the Baptist is at the front left, identified by his camel-hair garments, and Peter stands behind him with the keys. Paul is depicted second on the right, and can be identified by his long beard and balding head, and the sword in his right hand. The bishop in the foreground on the right is St Augustine. This was probably the centre panel of a triptych and would once have hung in the cell of an Augustinian monk. Jacopo del Casentino had a large workshop, where many such triptychs were made for private devotion.
