Madonna of Humility, Fra Angelico, c. 1440

Madonna of Humility, Fra Angelico, c. 1440

panel, h 74cm × w 52cm. More details

As a Dominican monk, Fra Angelico was not subject to the strict rules of the Florentine painters’ guild. He was thus free to develop a more personal style. This combined strong realism and solid forms with a certain sweetness partly derived from earlier Sienese and Florentine examples.
