Abstract

The Madonna appears on the panel as the Queen of the Heaven and Siena. In the foreground the four patron saints of Siena are knneeling: Sts Ansanus, Savinus, Crescentius and Victor. The Latin inscription on the base of the throne contains the name of the painter. The painting ornamented the high altar of the Cathedral of Siena until 1505. Later the predella pictures were separated and the original fame was lost.
