"The art of painting owes its origin to Nature herself" - Giorgio Vasari (1511 – 74)

Italian 14th century Icon from the south-east (Abruzzi) region of Italy. The gold background painting on a canvas and timber support shows the strong Sienese influence, which was spreading extensively in the region, and elsewhere, at the time.
