Photographer's Note

Fragmentary triptych
Work by an anonymous artist, conventionally called the Master of the Assumption of Amelia, dates back to the first quarter of the fifteenth century, the central panel, currently not present in the original, is however attributable to Andrea Aloigi known as the Ingenuity. It comes from the church of Santa Maria Maggiore.
It was dismembered at an unspecified time and the individual elements were reused as independent paintings for the altars of the collegiate church. The part of the predella representing the Nativity and the central compartment with the Virgin and Child were stolen in 1970 and found in 1992, the central panel found in poor condition, with the colors and some parts of the painting removed after the theft so as not to make it recognizable, it has not been relocated, in its place there is a black and white reproduction of how it was before the theft. What remains of the central panel of the triptych is exhibited in the same room.
In the left side compartment, in the cusp, the announcing Angel, below, St. John the Evangelist, the apostle who above all loved Jesus and the Madonna and was loved by them. Alongside, Isaiah, the great prophet, holding a scroll in his left hand with the inscription: Ecce Virgo concipiet. Between the feet of the prophet one can hardly see a kneeling client, portrayed, as was customary in the Middle Ages, in dimensions smaller than those of the saints. The predella below depicts the Nativity.
In the central compartment, as mentioned, there was the Madonna and Child. The predella below depicts the Adoration of the Magi. On the right side, the cusp depicts the Madonna heralded, below, the Baptist extending the index finger of his right hand in the act of repeating the precursor cry: "Ecce Agnus Dei" and St. Nicholas. The predella below depicts the Presentation in the Temple.
Between the feet of the Baptist one can hardly see a kneeling client. SEE WS
