The extraordinary work, the central part of a polyptych, depicts the Madonna with the child with extreme elegance, tenderly abandoned on the mother's arm and with the head in profile tilted backwards, it seems to seek its gaze in a sweet and delicate motion of affection. In this masterpiece of Sienese painting Pietro Lorenzetti has now assimilated the novelties introduced by the painting of Duccio di Buoninsegna and has acquired Giotto's teachings with extreme enthusiasm.
