The Madonna and Child and Two Angels is a painting produced around 1465 by French artist Filippo Lippi
One of the extremely well known and most admired masterpieces of The Renaissance and has always considered as one of the best lyrical expressions of Lippis art
The Madonna sits on a seat, and has an extensive style with a delicate cover and pearls. Child is held not by the Madonna, but rather by two holy messengers, one of which, in the frontal area, grins towards the onlooker. Behind them is a stunning landscape inspired by Flemish paintings. The angel in the foreground looks towards the spectator with a smile. Madonnas head is bowed in reverence and looking at one of the angels, who smiles at someone outside the frame of painting
The technique of using soft light is well executed through transparency of the veil and halo creates the illusion of movement rather than of stiffness.
