The painting "Adoration of the Child with Angel" by the artist Mariotto Albertinelli is an impressive example of the artistic style of the Italian Renaissance. The composition of the painting is very balanced, with the Infant Jesus in the center surrounded by angels and the Magi on either side. The figure of the Child stands out for its beauty and softness, while the angels and the Magi are represented with great detail and realism.

The use of color in the painting is also notable, with soft and warm tones that create an atmosphere of tranquility and serenity. The details of the clothing and objects in the painting are also impressive, with great care taken to depict the folds and textures of the fabrics.

The history of the painting is interesting as it is known to have been commissioned by the Vespucci family in Florence in the 15th century. The painting remained in the family for many years before being sold and finally acquired by the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC in 1947.

A little known aspect of the painting is that Albertinelli worked in collaboration with another artist, Fra Bartolomeo, in making the work. Both artists were frequent friends and collaborators, and their joint work can be seen in many other works of art of the time.

Overall, the painting "Adoration of the Child with Angel" is an impressive work that shows Mariotto Albertinelli's skill and talent in handling the Renaissance style. Its balanced composition, use of color and realistic details make this painting a true jewel of Italian art.
