The earliest picture connected with Guido is a half-length Madonna from the San Domenico of Siena. The Virgin, of tall stature, sits on a large seat and points with her right hand to the infant on her knee, who gives the benediction and grasps a scroll in his left hand. Her round head, a little bent, supported by a slender neck, is disfigured by the clumsiness of its nose, which starts from a projecting angular root, terminating in a broad depression. The arched lines of the brow are but the continuation of a long curved lid extending towards the temple far beyond the outer corner of the eye.
