L’ODIGITRIA DETTA ‘DI GUGLIELMO II’ DELLA CATTEDRALE DI MONREALE

Giovanni Travagliato, Mauro Sebastianelli

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The book deals with the historical-artistic and technical-scientific study of an ancient painting on wood of the Cathedral of Monreale representing the Madonna and Child in the iconography of 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.
