This panel, "The Madonna and Child Enthroned with Two Donors" by the Goodhart Ducciesque Master (active 1315-30), retains its original engaged frame. The crisp, shallow ogee molding echoes the lines of the throne and the angle of the Madonna's hed as she gazes directly out at the viewer. The way the frame hides the donor's feet makes the two central figures appear closer and comparatively even larger.
Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Goodhart, New York. Bequeathed by Mrs. Goodhart to Robert Lehman in 1952.
