Duccio, di Buoninsegna, d. 1319.
e Artist : painter
Maesta (verso) (detail).
b 211 x 425 cm.
c Tempera on wood panel.
Beginning Date: 1308.
Completion Date: 1311.
The main element of the verso consisted of fourteen panels. .Except for the Entry into Jerusalem and the Crucifixion, each panel contains two episodes. The central part of the lower row with the Agony in the Garden and Christ taken Prisoner is twice as wide as the other compartments (but the same as the Crucifixion panel) because the events portrayed are composed of different narrative units.Numerous contrasting theories have been advanced by critics for the order of interpretation, rendered problematical by the variety of New Testament sources drawn on by Duccio. It is certain that the cycle began at the bottom left and ended at the top right, proceeding from left to right first on the lower row and then on the upper.
