Vatican Catalog provenance statement: from the Collegiate Church of San Venanzio di Camerino; then at Palazzo Altieri in Rome; gift of Prince Altieri to Leo XIII for his Priestly Jubilee, 1888
"Original narrative dimension, where strong accents and expressive intensity of lines live with certain decorative conventions of the last season of the Gothic style" (Guido Cornini)
Note from JML
I chose to use this rendition of The Coronation of Mary because of its political correctness in 2020. In the center of the triptych both Mary and Jesus are portrayed with olive complexions indicative of a Galilean Semite. The anchoring paintings of The Nativity and The adoration of the Magi depict varying complexions of Mary, Three Wisemen, and Joseph. The image of The Nativity clearly defines the age difference between Mary and Joseph. I really enjoy the accuracies in depicting the character roles in this triptych as well.

JML-PLOGS poetic commentary is below
Come to me, all you who are weary
and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from
me, for I am gentle and humble in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls.
Full Blown Hissy Fit
It felt like you were wondering why—
So, I told you my warning label
And the stigma just made you worry
I don’t want psychoanalysis
I just wanted you to listen
But you can’t and that’s okay—
Sometimes I’m too tired to get mad
So I sit infront of the cross and it’s like
Letting my mind, heart, and soul scream
And it’s calming.
Sometimes I feel petty
About letting all that out
Especially since— the petty truth
Is as some would say petty— especially
If I said it out loud.
There wasn’t a duel and Christ let me vent.
It’s very calming.
But still I feel bad because I just vented
To Christ and maybe—
I should have been grateful or gracious
And a lot less angry and pissed
Pretty much I just let my soul
Throw a hissy fit infront of the crucifix—
Now I’m trying to get over how
Liberating it was because
It was very calming.
