The Madonna and Child John the Baptist and two angels are back in the Gallery, loaned to the Tiroler Landesmuseum Ferdinandeum in Innsbruck for the exhibition dedicated to Botticelli's Madonnas which ended on January 30th. Dated 1468, it is an early work by the Renaissance painter who, while remaining tied to the style of the masters, such as Verrocchio and Filippo Lippi, shows a desire to emancipate himself from the illustrious models.

The Pala del Trebbio is also back in the Gallery, on display until January 24 in the large exhibition dedicated by the Jacquemart-André Museum in Paris to Botticelli's workshop and which celebrated the genius of the artist and the activity of his atelier. The painting, so named because it comes from the oratory of the Medici Castle of Trebbio, in the countryside north of Florence, sees the Madonna and Child surrounded by the Saints most dear to the Medici family: in fact, San Lorenzo and the martyrs Cosma and Damiano can be recognized, all recurring names in the noble Florentine family.
