tempera on panel (218 × 118 cm) — 1280-1299 Museum Santa Maria dei Servi, Bologna

Cimabue biography

The attribution of this Maestà (Mary enthroned) to Cimabue is somewhat uncertain. It may also have been made by a member of Cimabue's workshop. Some claim Duccio made it.

The panel is now in the basilica of Santa Maria dei Servi in Bologna.

The composition is less rigid than in previous Cimabue maestà's, dating from 1280 and 1290. But the dating of the work is uncertain; some sources date it between the two other maestà's.
