The Maestà, or Maestà of Duccio is an altarpiece composed of many individual paintings commissioned by the city of Siena in 1308 from the artist Duccio di Buoninsegna, from which several panels are now dispersed or lost.The front panels make up a large enthroned Madonna and Child with saints and angels, and a predella of the Childhood of Christ with prophets. The reverse has the rest of a combined cycle of the Life of the Virgin and Life of Christ in a total of forty-three small scenes. Though it took a generation for its effect truly to be felt, Duccio´s Maestà set Italian painting on a course leading away from the hieratic representations of Byzantine art towards more direct presentations of reality.The painting was installed in the cathedral of Siena on June 9, 1311.Besides the Virgin Mary and the Baby Jesus, saints depicted in the painting include John the Evangelist (to the left of the throne); Saint Paul; Catherine of Alexandria; John the Baptist (to the right of the throne); Saint Peter; and Saint Agnes. In the foreground are Siena´s various patron saints: Saint Ansanus; Saint Savinus; Saint Crescentius; and Saint Victor.The altarpiece remained in place until 1711, when it was dismantled in order to distribute the pieces between two altars. The five-meter high construction was dismantled and sawn up, and the paintings damaged in the process. Partial restoration took place in 1956. The dismantling also led to pieces going astray, either being sold, or simply unaccounted for. Today remains of the altarpiece not at Siena are divided among several other museums.
