Virgin of Humility, with lily, plus 5 angels, 1435-45 (Thyssen)

The Madonna of Humility refers to images of the Virgin seated modestly on the ground, usually on a cushion.  This posture emphasizes her humanity and motherhood, as opposed to the Madonna Enthroned (Maesta), which presents her as the Queen of Heaven.   (From Brooklyn Museum page) 

[From Barcelona Museum site: 

Madonna of Humility

Giovanni da Fiesole, known as "Fra Angelico"
(Vicchio de Mugello, around 1395/1400 – Rome, 1455)

The Virgin, seated with the Child standing on her lap, is wearing a red tunic and blue mantle and holding a vase with roses and a lily in her right hand. She has an enormous golden halo with the inscription AVE MARIA GRATIA PLENA. The Child, with pink clothes and a sky-blue belt, is holding a lily flower in his left hand and resting his right arm on his mother's shoulder so that he is touching her cheek. His halo bears the inscription ALFA / OM(ega).

They are set on a throne, surrounded by five angels, three of which are holding a sumptuous curtain in the manner of a canopy covering the background, while the other two are sitting at the feet of the Virgin with musical instruments (a portable organ and a lute).

This panel has been identified with the work described by Vasari in 1568, at that time the property of the Gondi family in their house in Florence, and probably formed part of a triptych now dismembered. In 1857 it figured in the collection of King Leopold I of Belgium. In 1909 Adolfo Venturi attributed it to Fra Angelico, an opinion generally accepted by historiography.

As regards the date, the work can be placed between the tabernacle of the Guild of Weavers (or Linaioli), of 1433, and the Mourning Over the Dead Body of Christ in the Museo di San Marco (Florence), of 1436, with other details from the Coronation of the Virgin in the Musée du Louvre, of 1434-5.
