Head and wings of an angel and forehead of another

Possibly by Antonio Rossellino Italian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 500

This fragment comes from the same marble entity (a tabernacle or an elaborate frame for a Madonna?) as fragments in the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and elsewhere. The high quality of the carving has led them to be attributed to Antonio Rossellino (1427-1479) and to Benedetto da Maiano (1442-1497).
