Notes

Summary:
This tondo shows to what extent Domenico learned the lesson of Gentile da Fabriano. In a similar way to the Strozzi Altarpiece, the traditional subject is depicted as a chivalric or courtly scene, crowded with characters wearing rich and elegant costumes, all described down to the smallest details. This detailed description, which is evident in the landscape as well, and the presence of hunting motifs are the result of the influence northern painting exerted on Domenico. The Berlin tondo is one of the works that demonstrates most clearly the fundamental influences on Domenico's art.
