These Early Italian Renaissance paintings are
traditionally called “gold grounds” because of the gold leaf applied
broadly to their surfaces. The precious, sparkling metal signaled the
sacredness of the figures and stories to viewers. These paintings are
all fragments, originally parts of larger altarpieces that were
installed in churches and chapels, giving visual form to biblical
stories and aiding worshippers in their devotion.
