Franciscan monks commissioned Sassetta to create a polyptych to fit over the high alter. In 1578, the polyptych is disassembled and then sold in 1810. Today 26 fragments of the altarpiece are dispersed throughout ten museums worldwide, but many pieces have been lost. Learn the history of the polyptych, why historians believe these panels are linked, and how they were created.
