Description

The two tablets by Fra Angelico depicting the Nativity and the Oration in the Garden formed a small altar with two or three doors and were donated to the city of Forlì by the Abbot Melchiorre Missirini from Forlì, secretary of Antonio Canova. In the painting of the "Nativity" or "Crib" the scene is outlined by the painter with few essential elements. The Virgin and Saint Joseph are in an attitude of adoring the Child, lying naked on the ground on golden straw. In the hut you can see the ox and the donkey. On the roof nine small angels are intent on joyfully dancing, while a tenth angel flies into the night sky to announce the good news to the shepherds.
