Fiesole Altarpiece

Fiesole Altarpiece, 1425 — Fra Angelico,

This alterpiece for the Convent of San Domenico in Fiesole Italy was one of Fra Angelico's earliest works. The perspective is less refined than in Angelico's later work, and features a Maestà, a 'Madonna enthroned' at the center, with the young Christ ringed-round by angels and flanked by the saints Thomas of Aquino, Barnabas, Dominic and Peter of Verona.
