Coronation of the Virgin

Coronation of the Virgin is a painting produced in 1432 by Italian early renaissance painter Fra Angelico.

Coronation of Mary is a subject of Christian Art, one of the commonest subjects during 14th-18th century, because of a general increase in devotion to Mary in this early gothic period

Christ places the ornate golden crown upon Virgin Mary’s bowed heard. Divine light symbolizing their divinity is present. Angels playing music and many important figures are present witnessing her coronation.

The work can be viewed at Uffizi Gallery, Florence
