Notes

Summary:
With this famous tondo Botticelli represented the Madonna with Child and five angels, in a beautiful composition that emphasize the circular form of the picture. In front of the Virgin there is the book open at the page containing the Magnificat, while two angels are putting on her head a star crown. The Madonna of the Magnificat is named after the song of praise which Mary sings the first chapter of Luke. When the angel Gabriel announces to Mary that she is pregnant with Jesus, he also tells her that her elderly cousin, Elizabeth, has also been divinely impregnated with a special child, John the Baptist. Mary hastens to Elizabeth's house and is greeted by her thus.
