Cimabue v. Giotto: Madonna Enthroned is a great comparison review between the two generations shifts in style of Italian artist depicting Madonna and Christ.

Did you know???? Blue pigments during the 14th century was extremely rare and expensive. This is because the blue pigment(azurite, ultramarine) was only produced in Afghanistan. Imagine the time it took to ship the pigments to Europe during a time without UPS?
