Gothic Altarpiece

Madonna and Child with Saints by Giovanni di Paolo (Giovanni di Paolo di Grazia)  (Italian, Siena 1398–1482 Siena)

Before you can put a Gothic altarpiece together, you first have to know how to take it apart. This is Giovanni di Paolo's polyptych from a church in Cortona, Italy, painted in 1454, en route to its permanent installation in Gallery 626 within the New European Paintings Galleries.
