A study for the San Marco Chruch (Florence) altarpiece, which is now in the Uffizi Gallery. This is the only surviving drawing for the composition, which underwent significant alteration – a second angel is still discernable to the right of the platform on which the Virgin stands. The verso of this sheet contains a sketch of two figures and is catalogued under the same inventory number in the Barber Collection.
