More about this artwork
Angels accompany Maria with music during her ascension to heaven, where Christ is awaiting her arrival surrounded by his prophets on an open starry sky. At the top of the gable area is the Coronation of the Virgin. The Sienese painter Lippo Memmi, brother-in-law of Simone Martini, a student of Duccio, was not able to refer to any other painting tradition as this theme was, at that time, still relatively fresh. This gave him a fair degree of creative freedom, which he used to create an original work that was later often copied.
