MADONNA COL BAMBINO E DUE ANGELI

madonna col bambino e due angeli

The group of characters depicted in the painting is place in front of a window open on a landscape till the horizon. In the foreground there is the Madonna which face, according to tradition, is inspired to the lover of Lippi, Lucrezia Buti. She sits on a high chair in obvious adoration of her son. Particular details are the veils and pearls that adorn her hair, re-use by many painters throughout the '400. The child is held by two angels and leans to the right shoulder of the mother. Alcuni esperti ipotizzano che il volto dell'angelo in primo piano è quello del figlio del pittore, Filippino che era circa 8 anni di età al momento.
