Attributed to Andrea di Giusto
- Andrea di Giusto
- Praying Angel
- tempera and gilt on panel, a fragment
Although an assistant to Masaccio early in his career, Andrea di Giusto was influenced by a number of his contemporaries, including-- and perhaps most enduringly-- by Fra Angelico, whose elegant and miniaturizing style is discernable in the present panel. It depicts the figure of an angel in adoration, presumably the infant Christ. An alternate attribution to Benozzo Gozzoli has been suggested.
