Coronation of the Virgin

Giovanni di Paolo (Giovanni di Paolo di Grazia) Italian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 956

The richly decorated surfaces and extensive use of silver and gold indicate that this panel—one of the artist's finest and best preserved works—derives from an important altarpiece, though its early history is not known. It is likely that a predella showing scenes from the life of the Virgin was originally below the main panel of the Coronation.
