• Gold-ground panel painting

    Before canvas came into general use at the end of the 1500s, wood panel was the support most often used for painting. Panel paintings were designed for specific sacred or secular purposes: they might be part of an altarpiece that adorned an altar, a small diptych used for worship at home, or a standard carried in a procession. Artists applied gold ground and expensive pigments to the most splendid panel paintings.
