Virgin with the Child

and Scenes from the Life of St Anne

1452: Galleria Palatina (Palazzo Pitti), Florence

Although a monk, Fra Lippi interprets his subject here in a rather worldly manner. The interior is patterned on the home of a well-to-do Florentine, and scholars have speculated that the identity of the model for the Madonna was Lippi's own mistress, Lucretia.
