Crucified Christ with Donors 1317–1327

Ugolino di Nerio (d.1339/1349?)

The Courtauld, London (Samuel Courtauld Trust)

(active 1317–27). Sienese painter, a close follower of Duccio, in whose workshop he probably trained. His only certain work is a large polyptych painted for the high altar of S. Croce, Florence; it once bore the signature ‘Ugolino da Siena’, but this has disappeared. The altarpiece was dismantled in the 16th century and is now widely dispersed; several panels are in the National Gallery, London.
