Madonna and Child with Saints

Priamo della Quercia (Priamo del Pietro) Italian

Not on view

The brother of the great Sienese sculptor Jacopo della Quercia, Priamo was a retardataire artist of modest abilities. He was active in Volterra between 1440 and 1467 and the present panels can be tentatively identified with an altarpiece commissioned in 1442 for the church of San Michele. The center Madonna and Child is based on a composition by Taddeo di Bartolo. Aside from the fact that the right side of the center panel has been cut, the pictures are in remarkably good condition.
