Description

The table, with a gold background, has a gilded frame in the shape of a polylobed arch resting on two small columns. Above a marble throne covered by a canopy with red festoons alternating with white coats of arms with a black eagle, is the Virgin wrapped in a large dark mantle with a golden border, over a brown robe. On either side of the throne, two praying Angels, one dressed in a large pink robe, the other green, are facing the naked Child in the arms of the Virgin, with three small flowers in his hand. On the suppedaneo of the throne in Latin capitals: AVE. QUEEN. CELORUM. AVE. DOMUS. The painting has been unanimously attributed by the critics to Saturnino Gatti for affinity with the Madonna del Rosario coming from the L'Aquila church of San Domenico, noting in the amplitude of the forms a Pierfranciscan ancestry mediated through Antoniazzo Romano. Serra also highlighted numerous references to Fiorenzo di Lorenzo in the brightness of the forms and in the modulation of the drapery.
