334 x 768 • 83 KB
Fra Angelico joined the Dominican Order at the House of San Domingo, Fiesole, at an unknown date and after a period in Rome, returned to Fiesole in c 1449. From 1438-45 he was the artist most favoured by the Medici. Fra Angelico frequently worked on Dominican altarpieces and it is likely that this panel originally belonged to such an altarpiece as a flanking pilaster.
