Maestà by MEMMI, Lippo
MEMMI, Lippo
(b. ca. 1285, Siena, d. ca. 1361, Siena)

Maestà

1317-18
Fresco
Palazzo Pubblico, San Gimignano

The fresco shows the influence of Simone Martini's Maestà painted two years earlier in the Palazzo Pubblico in Siena.

The paired figures to the left and right were added by Bartolo di Fredi when the fresco was enlarged in 1367. The fresco was repaired along the lower edge in the 1460s by Benozzo Gozzoli, who may have repainted the heads of the two figures to the far right.
