Despite various alterations, this frame, now used on a "Madonna and Child" by Sano di Pietro (1405-1481), still has a fine patina. The two rows of punching of the same pattern in the frame create a visual rhythm that resonates in the punched halos and garment borders in the painting.
Paolo Paolini, Rome. Acquired by Philip Lehman in 1916.
