Madonna and Child

Luca di Tommè di Nuto Italian

Not on view

The picture dates from about 1360–65, when Luca di Tomme is known to have collaborated with the miniaturist, Niccolò di Ser Sozzo. This was his most inventive period and the present picture, the center panel of an unidentified altarpiece, is one of his more distinguished works. Although there are no major losses, the character of the picture has been greatly marred by flattening due to its transfer and harsh cleaning.
