Bastiano Mainardi: Painter of Altarpieces in Renaissance Tuscany considers an important altarpiece Virgin and Child Enthroned with Saint Justus of Volterra and Saint Margaret of Antioch by the Tuscan master Sebastiano Mainardi (1466-1513). Mainardi's late works are exceptional in the history of Renaissance art because they are invested with a conscious artistic simplicity that amplifies the immediacy of their religious message. In this book, Alessio Assonitis investigates the history and iconography of the painting and situates it within an art historical context, while David Miller's study documents the extensive conservation treatment of the painting.
