About the Work

The painter from Umbria who created this unique devotional work can probably be identified as Fiorenzo di Lorenzo. Flanked by Saints Christopher and Sebastian, the Madonna sits enthroned with the Infant Jesus in a palace-like room. The floor is covered with marble, and both the canopy above the throne and the back wall are hung with precious gold brocade. The lavish use of gold leaf, which has also been worked and decorated in different ways, contributes to the particular charm of this painting and also symbolises the omnipresence of God.
