Madonna of Humility with Two Angels

Until 1936, this panel was attributed to Jacopo di Cione. Its iconography is typical of the traditional Madonna dell'umiltà, in which the Madonna sits modestly on a cushion, laying emphasis on the humility of her character.

The painting was sold on the market by the Art Institute, Chicago.
