Madonna and Child with Two Angels
This work by Filippo Lippi, painted around 1465, is one of his best known and most admired paintings of the Renaissance.
The popularity of this work of art likely comes from the fact that many think the semblance of the Madonna may actually be the portrait of Lucrezia Buti.
The Virgin Mary is depicted in profile, praying in front of the Child supported by two angels whose faces actually make them look like two rascalsor young boys. Behind them is a beautiful landscape inspired by Flemish paintings. The Virgin’s hairstyle is very elegant and embellished with pearls and veils.
The sweetness of the composition, as well as the gracefulness of the veils and the woman’s hairdressing would later become a model of elegance for many painters, such as Botticelli. In fact, the author of “The Birth of Venus” and the “Spring”, was not only a pupil of Filippo Lippi’s, but also a close friend and co-worker of the master’s son, Filippino.
