English: executed for the chapel of Sant'Ansano of the Cathedral in Siena, part of a cycle with the theme of the life of Mary commissioned by the cathedral for the four altars of the patrons of Siena (Saint Ansanus, Saint Sabinus, Saint Crescentius and St. Victor) during 1330-1350. These included the Presentation at the Temple by Ambrogio Lorenzetti (altar of St. Crescentius, 1342), the Nativity of the Virgin by Pietro Lorenzetti (1342, Altar of St. Sabinus), and a Nativity, now disassembled, attributed to Bartolomeo Bulgarini from 1351 (altar of St. Victor) and were crowned by Duccio di Buoninsegna's Maestà.
