Collection: Madonna and Child Enthroned with Saints and Angels

ARTIST: Museum Religious Art Classics


Artist: Francesco Botticini – c. 1446 – 1497

Botticini practiced an eclectic style, influenced successively by Verrocchio and Botticelli. In the painting the two angels drawing back the curtains depend from those in the altarpiece painted by Botticelli in 1483 for San Barnaba in Florence and now in the Uffizi. Painted for the church of the Servi at Fucecchio (near Empoli), this altarpiece was later in the Collegiata.
