Description

The Madonna and Child with Two Angels is a painting by the Italian Renaissance master Sandro Botticelli, dating to c. 1468-1469. It is housed in the Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte, in Naples. This work was once attributed to Filippino Lippi, master of Botticelli. The typology of the faces and other details induce to date the work to the same period of the Fortitude and the other juvenile Madonnas of the Italian painter.
