Madonnas attributed to Paolo Uccello 1397-1475

Paolo Uccello born Paolo di Dono as (Italian artist, from 1397 to 1475) Adoration of the Child

I try to begin each day with a painting of the Madonna & Child. It centers me; connects me to the past; & encourages me to post some of the religious paintings which were a large part of the core of early Western art. In the 4C, as the Christian population was rapidly growing & was now supported by the state, Christian art evolved & became grander to suit new, enlarged public spaces & the changing contemporary tastes of elite private clients.
