"The Adoration of the Magi" by Fra Angelico and Fra Filippo Lippi (c. 1440/1460) 10003478_10153815181523044_7400018395518907917_n.jpg (480×480)

Madonna dell' humilta, Fra Angelico, 1440. As a Dominican monk, artist Fra Angelico was able to avoid the strict rules of the Florentine guilds. That allowed him to develop his own personal style: remarkably realistic, with big forms and a rather sweet quality derived from the older painting traditions of Siena and Florence.
