Domenico Ghirlandaio Madonna Enthroned mid 15th century

Domenico Ghirlandaio was born Domenico di Tommaso Bigordi called Domenico Ghirlandaio in Florence in 1449 and died there in 1494. Ghirlandaio, which means "garland maker", was an important Italian artist in the mid 15th century but not nearly as as well known his student Michalangelo. This painting is more properly identified as "Madonna and Child Enthroned with Four Angels, the Archangels Michael and Raphael, and St. Gusto and St. Zenobius". It was painted in the period between 1480 and 1485. It is painted with oil and tempera on a wooden panel. It is in the Galleria degli Uffizi in Florence, Italy.

Ghirlandaio also paints this same rug in Domenico Ghirlandaio' s Saint Jerome. I suspect he used it in The Confirmation of the Rule of the Order of St. Francis by Pope Honorius III. c.1480-1485. Fresco. Santa Trinita, Sassetti Chapel, Florence, Italy.
