Welcome to the Museo della Battaglia e di Anghiari website

The exhibition in the Museo di Palazzo Taglieschi focuses on three particularly significant depictions of the Virgin Mary: Giovanni dal Ponte’s hieratic Madonna which has recently returned to Anghiari, Jacopo della Quercia’s iconic Madonna and Child, and an extremely moving and engaging Virgin caressing the Christ Child with her hands and her gaze, attributed to Benedetto Buglioni. Visitors travel from the Early Renaissance of Giovanni dal Ponte and Jacopo della Quercia, two artists who, though coeval, were far removed from one another in their tastes and in their training – two alternative approaches reflecting the art of Florence and Siena respectively – to the magnificent glazed terracottas of the Della Robbia workshop.
