Gallerie degli Uffizi. Incoronazione della Virgine (Lorenzo Monaco)

The Coronation of the Virgin is a tempera on panel polyptych by the Italian late Gothic artist Lorenzo Monaco, centred on the subject of the Coronation of the Virgin. Once in the Camaldolese monastery of Santa Maria degli Angeli, it is now housed in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. It is dated February 1413 which, in the Florentine calendary (which began in March), corresponded to 1414.The painting is mentioned in the early 15th century by Antonio Billi.In the late 16th century, it was replaced in the altar it occupied by a large canvas by Alessandro Allori. The Coronation was found back in the 19th century, when it was housed in the Camaldolese abbey of San Pietro a Cerreto, in poor conditions; it was therefore restored from 1872 in the frame and, for what concerns the painted part, in 1990, showing back the precious and (for the time) expensive use of lapis lazuli blue.
