Madonna and Child surrounded by angels, with saints Frediano and Augustine - Filippo Lippi. 208x244

Filippo Lippi (1406-1469), an artist of the Early Renaissance, received a monastic education, took a monastic vow and created religious compositions.

This is an altar image commissioned by the painter for the chapel dedicated to Saint Frediano, in the church of Santo Spirito in Florence. The artist is a true singer of the beautiful. In the image Madonna and Child with Angels heavenly he creates lovely images, striking sublime beauty. Angels are amazing in their spontaneity: they look thoughtfully around, one of them looks at the Madonna, who, holding the divine Baby in her arms and lowering her eyes, approaches two kneeling saints - Frediano and Augustine.

Until 1810 the altar remained in the church. During the Napoleonic conquests, he was sent to France and never returned to his homeland. In 1814, work came to the Louvre.
