Active in late trecento Florence, the Master of the Lazzaroni Madonna was a follower of Nardo di Cione and influenced by Cenni di Francesco and the late Andrea de Bonaiuti. His work was first isolated in print by Richard Offner (see A Legacy of Attributions, New York 1981, pp. 37-38) around a panel formerly in the Lazzaroni collection, Paris, and his oeuvre has been amplified by subsequent scholars (see, for example, M. Boskovits, La Pittura Fiorentina alla vigilia del Rinascimento, Florence 1975, pp. 239-240, footnote 169). The majority of the twenty to twenty-five works attributed to him are small portable triptychs, or fragments of dismembered triptychs.


Sonia Chiodo, to whom we are grateful, has independently confirmed the attribution of this work to the Master of the Lazzaroni Madonna based on photographs.
