(b. 1474, Firenze, d. 1515, Firenze)
Adoration of the Child with Angel1497-99
Panel, diameter 86 cm
Galleria Palatina (Palazzo Pitti), Florence
This is an early work of the artist. Featuring the Virgin adoring the Child with the help of an angel who hands him some of the instruments of the Passion, it is formally rather weak in its awkward spatial and figural relationships.
