Madonna with Child and Two Angels

Pietro Orioli

Pietro di Francesco Orioli was a Sienese painter open to the modern influence of Renaissance painting, but only thirty years ago he was unknown to Italy’s best known art historians. The painting shows a Madonna with a child and two wingless angels. It shows the sky in the background, at a moment when Siena – we are still in the second half of the 15th century – continued to produce paintings with gold backgrounds reminiscent of the late Gothic period.
