Beato Angelico. Storie dell’infanzia di Cristo.
From 28 October 2023 to 28 January 2024 the Carlo Maria Martini Diocesan Museum in Milan (entrance from 3, Piazza Sant'Eustorgio) will host the “Capolavoro per Milano”, the fifteenth event of its kind which, as usual, will welcome visitors throughout the Christmas period.
The work on display this year is by Fra Angelico: Stories of Christ's childhood. Panel from the Armadio degli Argenti from the San Marco Museum in Florence. This is an extraordinary wooden component from the Armadio degli Argenti, from the San Marco Museum in Florence, which houses the largest collection of works by this artist, one of the greatest painters of the Italian Renaissance. The work, commissioned by Piero Cosimo de' Medici and painted between 1450 and 1452, is dedicated to Stories of Christ's Childhood, from The Annunciation to Christ Amongst the Doctors, starting with Ezekiel's Vision.
It presents a detailed narrative sequence, a sort of illustrated Bible. Particularly striking in this miniature pictorial cycle, featuring the atmospheric lighting effects and dazzling colours typical of Fra Angelico, are the delicate Annunciation and, a favourite theme of this artist, the intimate and intense Nativity, with an extraordinary artificial lighting effect, as well as Circumcision, set in a temple which also reveals the artist's awareness of the architectural innovations of the time.
