Pictures, sculpture, miniatures and furniture from the 14th to 18th century
Housed in the recreation room of Brunelleschi’s foundlings hospital, Galleria dello Spedale degli Innocenti received a substantial blow in 1853, when several important works were auctioned off (for a relative pittance) to raise money for the hospital.
The remaining pieces include an unsurprising concentration of Madonna and Bambino pieces, including a Botticelli and a vivid Luca della Robbia. The high point, however, is Ghirlandaio’s Adoration of the Magi, commissioned for the high altar of the hospital’s church.
