Maesta with Twenty Angels and Nineteen Saints (1308-1311)


    His works include the Rucellai Madonna (1285) for Santa Maria Novella (now in the Uffizi) and the fabled Maesta (1308-11), his masterpiece, for Siena's cathedral. The centre of the Maesta depicts the Virgin and Child enthroned and surrounded by angels and saints. He also painted a work known as the Stoclet Madonna, the name stemming from its previous ownership by Stoclet in his collection in Brussels. The Madonna, painted on a wooden panel around the year 1300, was purchased in November 2004 by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City for an estimated sum of 45 million USD, the most expensive purchase ever by the museum.
