  • Title: The Music of Devotion: Image, Voice, and the Imagination in a "Madonna of Humility" by Domenico di Bartolo [Domenico di Bartolo adapted for his painting "Madonna of Humility" the Sienese practice of attaching jewelry to works of art; this reflected Marian titles like "star of the sea" and "precious gem," with their luminous implications; Domenico also made great use of musical imagery, with its liturgical references].
