Coronation of the Virgin (surrounded by saints and angels) altarpiece with a Vir Dolorum (Man of Sorrows) on the predella. Dated to about the same time that Jacopo produced an altarpiece with the same theme, Coronation of the Virgin, for the mint in Florence (1372-1373). That altarpiece was a collaboration between Niccolo di Pietro Gerini and an artist known as Simone. Jacopo also had a workshop with his brothers.
