Later printing [1989]. From the introduction: “The paintings in this catalogue, which are all from the National Gallery’s own Collection, span almost a complete century of medieval Italian panel painting. They range from a relatively simple Crucifix painted c. 1272-80 to an elaborate high altarpiece painted in 1370-1. The methods and materials used to execute these works are common to all of them, in that all are wooden panels prepared with gesso grounds, painted in tempera and gilded.”
