This Lent Devotional features Duccio’s Temptation of Christ. When you follow the link (highlighted text), you will find both an analysis of the work, and a contemplation on the spiritual implications of the painting.
Originally this painting was part of the Maesta, a complicated altarpiece painted for the Cathedral in sienna. You can read more about the story of the complete altarpiece in this article.
If you are interested in Art as it relates to your devotional activities I have a ton of material available to you:
