Uffizi Gallery
Florence, Italy

A famous example of the artist's maturity, this painting was transferred to the Uffizi in 1796 from the Villa of Poggio Imperiale. Thanks to the spontaneity and naturalness of the composition, it reaped great interest as an iconographic model for numerous artists including the young Botticelli, apprenticed to the friar Lippi. On the back of the panel there is an autograph charcoal sketch of a female figure.
