The Coronation of the Virgin with Angels and Four Saints Art
: Neri di Bicci (Italian, 1418-1492) : The Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, Maryland, US : 1475, Florence
The great thing about art is that you can see a million paintings based on biblical scenes, and then find one that is still so different from all the rest. Whether or not you are a Christian is not the point here; note the incredible design of having the angels surround the central gold area in the middle.
SummaryIn this altarpiece, Christ places a crown upon the head of his kneeling mother, the Virgin Mary, an act symbolic of their status as King and Queen of Heaven.
