Wonderfully expressive, the noble Linaiuoli Madonna Alterpiece from the Museo di San Marco, Florence, presents the Madonna and Child surrounded by 12 angel musicians. Created in 1433 by the Florentine artist and Dominican friar Fra Angelico (Italian, 13871455), this joyous devotional piece is the source for the musical angels on these arched and hinged diptychs, crafted in Italy. Gilded wood. Each 13”H x 13”W when open.
