La Madonna della Bruna di Monreale: un testimone della 'maniera cypria' nell’abbazia benedettina del re Guglielmo II

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The essay deals with the historical-artistic study of an ancient painting on wood of the Cathedral of Monreale representing the Madonna and Child in the iconography of the Odigitria. Traditionally dated to the twelfth or even eleventh century and linked to King William II "the good", thanks to the results of recent scientific restoration has instead moved the dating to the mid-thirteenth century, as a product of the so-called 'maniera cypria' diffused in southern Italy and the Mediterranean area, due to the patronage of an abbot-archbishop of Monreale.
