MEMLING, Hans

Madonna Enthroned with Child and Two Angels (detail)

1490-91
Oil on wood, 57 x 42 cm
Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence

The Madonna is portrayed with a balanced, placid, gentle demeanour. The landscape is perfect in its delicacy, and the character of the work is produced by the sense of elegiac peace, by an extraordinary compositional balance, and by the almost timeless and enchanted atmosphere.
