This work is about the panel portraying Scenes of Christ’s life, realized by the painters Guido da Siena and Dietisalvi di Speme for the Church of S. Andrea in Badia Ardenga, Montalcino.

At that time Father Gabriello Balestrieri, parish priest of the Church of Sant’ Andrea alla Badia Argenga, sold the painting to Giuseppe Pianigiani and Giovanni Petrilli, who sawed it in fifteen plates so as to get the most out of the sale.

Abstract

This work is about the panel portraying Scenes of Christ’s life, realized by the painters Guido da Siena and Dietisalvi di Speme for the Church of S. Andrea in Badia Ardenga, Montalcino. The recent publication of the documents – mainly unpublished – found by Fabio Bisogni about the trial for the incautious purchase made by Johann Anton Ramboux of three of the fifteen plates in which the original painting had been reduced will help to try and reconstruct the painting as accurately as possible the way it must have been up to 1841. At that time Father Gabriello Balestrieri, parish priest of the Church of Sant’ Andrea alla Badia Argenga, sold the painting to Giuseppe Pianigiani and Giovanni Petrilli, who sawed it in fifteen plates so as to get the most out of the sale. Today only twelve of the fifteen plates remain.
