Madonna and Child
Work of the Maestro di Fossa, Italian painter and engraver active in the first half of the fourteenth century between southern Umbria and Abruzzo, recognized leader of the Spoleto painting remained anonymous, owes its name to the town of Fossa where a wooden Madonna was kept enclosed in a painted tabernacle, the first work attributed to him.
The work of Alessandro Delpriori has definitively established the unity and the Spoleto origin of his works, so it would be more correct to call him by the name of Maestro della Madonna del Duomo of Spoleto, as Giovanni Previtali initially proposed in his "lessons Umbria. "
Built around 1335-1340 in carved and painted wood, it comes from the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta Spoleto, where it is currently preserved. It is among the absolute masterpieces of the Italian fourteenth century, more a three-dimensional painting than a sculpture.
