    The Locko di Segna was painted circa 1335-40, at a point when the artist was moving away from the style of his late father, Segna di Bonaventura (one of Duccio's most accomplished students). It displays the more painterly and expressive technique that he was developing under the influence of the Lorenzetti, which can be found in its full expression in, for example, the Crucifix of 1345 in the Pinacoteca, Siena (inv. no. 46).
