EARLY ITALIAN SCHOOL OF THE XIIIth CENTURY: The Virgin and Child attended by Saints. The Infant Savior presents a flower to St. Catherine, who, with St. Anthony and St. Paul, occupy the right of the picture, while on the left are St. Bruno, St. Francis and St. John. At the feet of the Virgin is introduced a shadowy cloud, and beneath this a carpet in green and gold. The upper part of the picture is bordered by cherub heads, while upon the predella are painted half-length figures of the crucified Savior, the Virgin Mary and S. Lucia. Upon the bases of the spiral columns at the sides of the picture are the arms of the family to which the altar-piece formerly belonged. On panel and gold-ground. 1'7 x 3'. [Pp. 5-6.]
