Abstract

The altarpiece was executed in 1414 for the church of the Florentine monastery of Santa Maria degli Angeli where the artist lived, being a Camaldolite monk. The Coronation is surrounded by two saints's groups, over the circles of the seven sky; the rich coloring of the polypthyc and the sacred atmosphere the painter realized are still involved with the tradition of international Gothic painting, wich was to give way to the new Renaissance art. On the spires are represented the Blessing Christ in the middle of the Annunciation, while the predella is decorated with scenes from the lifes of Mary, Christ and Saint Benedict, patron of the Camaldolite Order.
