Loans to Fogg Art Museum

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Fogg Art Museum has recently received, as a loan from Mrs. Francis P. Nash, a large tondo representing the Mystic Marriage of St. Catherine, which has many of the characteristics of Filippino Lippi's work, and which has been attributed to him.

The Fogg Museum has also received, as an indefinite loan, a small pinnacle representing St. Agnes, attributed to Ambrogio Lorenzetti. The little picture has much of the charm of the early Sienese School, though its some what rough execution does not compare favorably with the best work of Lorenzetti. It is the oldest painting in the Fogg Museum. Lorenzetti was active between 1323 and 1348, and this painting, even if executed by one of his pupils, was probably painted before 1350. The next earliest painting to this is a picture attributed to Spinello Aretino, which was probably painted in the year 1385.
