Duccio or Cimabue. Window Showing the Death, Assumption and Coronation of the Virgin.

Window – this is the oldest and the most important surviving example of Italian stained glass. The technique was widespread across northern Europe, especially in France, but not in Italy. The subject is the Virgin’s death and resurrection. The story begins at the bottom with the entombment of the Mother of God. It continues in the center with the assumption, and ends with her coronation by her son. More.
