Guariento di Arpo, Coronation of the Virgin Altarpiece: The Presentation and the Washing of the Feet

Padua, 1344
Tempera and gold leaf on panel
Norton Simon Museum, Pasadena, California

The left panel provides the minimum details from the traditional iconography: the altar, Mary handing the baby to Simeon, and Anna and Joseph at the left and right. The baldaquin-like superstructure is also traditional. The bright blue of Mary's cape is used throughout the panels to make her stand out from the other figures.

On the right, Jesus washes the feet of Peter (short, square beard), whose gesture expresses his words in John 13:9, "Lord, [wash] not only my feet, but also my hands and my head." Judas stands on the far right. Unlike the others, his halo is black.
