We began our day yesterday at the National Gallery. I forgot my phone/ camera, so Rennie took these for me. Here are a couple of triptychs to start – the first centers on crucifixion, by Bernardo Daddi, c. 1338, the second on Virgin and child enthroned, Tuscan School. Both have nativity on left panel. Notice the upper panels on first, with crucifixion of Peter (upside down) on left and St. Nicholas giving dowry money for young girls on right panel. The second has the angel Gabriel on top left, Mary on right. The colors of the Daddi one are stunning, the other more somber.
