Posted by Adam Busiakiewicz:

The Galleria dell'Accademia in Florence have announced their acquisition of an Angel and the Virgin by Giovanni Francesco Toscani (1372-1430).* The two paintings are fragments of a grand altarpiece painted for the Ardinghelli Chapel in the Basilica of Santa Trinita in Florence. Other surviving panels are located in Florence, Baltimore and Philadelphia respectively. The work was purchased by the museum for €400,000.

* - Apologies, my previous post indicated that there was only one painting instead of two.
