The Virgin and Child Enthroned with Angels

This is a variant of Benozzo's altarpiece, 'The Virgin and Child Enthroned', with the attendant saints omitted. Two extra seated angels are added, apparently from a design of Donatello. This work was probably done soon after the altarpiece, perhaps in Benozzo's workshop.
