Notes

Summary:
A contemporary of Botticelli, Ghirlandaio was head of the main Florentine workshop of the late 15th century. Some of his major works were executed for the Tornabuoni family; the cycle of the Life of the Virgin in the choir of Santa Maria Novella, and soon after, the Louvre pala which was commissioned by Lorenzo Tornabuoni for the chapel of the church of Cestello in Florence (Santa Maria Maddelena dei Pazzi) and completed, according to Vasari, by the two brothers of the artist. The figures, which combine linear grace with monumentality, stand out against a classical arch which opens onto a view of Rome.
