Virgin with the Child and Angels
It may be that this strikingly decorative panel of high quality, undiscovered until the 1990s, was the central compartment of a retable of modest dimensions. The theme, Our Lady with the Child surrounded by angels, was much cultivated with variations at the Serra brothers’ workshop, as other works denote. Beyond Mary’s distracted gaze, the image of the Child playing with the flower bud embodies the humanisation of holy figures characteristic of the Gothic world.
