This week we will be studying the triptych – ” The Nativity with the Prophets Isaiah and Ezekiel” by Duccio – 1308, Siena Cathedral, Italy. This is a 3 paneled altarpiece for the Siena Cathedral. It was placed in the cathedral for 450 years. The medium is tempera. It dates 1308-11. The ATP is Byzantine. Isaiah and Ezekiel foretold the birth of Christ. Mary is enthroned by angels and saints. We will also look at a couple of photos pf the cathedral. I love Art History!!!
