This gold-ground panel painting was most likely painted for a church in the artist's hometown of Siena, probably around the year 1320. The panel has a tooled gold background and shows three half-length figures each set below an individual rounded archway. Lorenzetti's works are remarkable for the emotional connection between his figures, and the viewer. Here, Christ and Saints are linked in silent conversation through their gestures and expressive glances.
