ITALIAN SCHOOL OF THE XVIth CENTURY: Coronation of the Virgin. Resting upon the clouds, supported by cherubs, is seen the Virgin, with hands crossed upon her breast, her countenance expressive of meekness, humility and submission. On the right is represented the Almighty Father, with a triangular nimbus around his head, in which form it is used to distinguish one of the persons of the Trinity. On the left is the crucified Son of God in the act of placing a crown upon the head of the Virgin, above which hovers the Holy Spirit, under the emblem of a dove. The left hand of the Almighty rests upon a globe, supported by a winged angel. Beneath this is St. John, with the cross and the lamb, also resting upon the clouds. In the foreground of the picture kneel and stand St. Lawrence and St. Stephen, the former with the palm branch, the book and the implement of his martyrdom; the latter also with a book and palm; before him, upon a platform, are three stones, indicating both the manner of his death and the Divine Trinity. 2'2 x 2'10 1/2. [P. 8.]
