Painting by Fra Filippo Lippi (1406-09.10.1469):
Madonna dell' Umilità con angeli e santi carmelitani;  too  t
he Madonna of Humility.
In early time it belongs to the collection of Trivulzio, now preserved in the Museo Castello Sforzesco. Milano, and too named the Trivulzio Madonna, after the name of the previous owner.

Probably painted (oil on panel, 85x168 cm.), when Fra Lippi was living in the monastery Santa Maria del Carmine, ca 1431, and destined for the altar of the Carmelite Saints Angelo and Alberto around the Virgin.  But probably there are two figures from the Dominican history at the right. One had a cleaver in his head and that is the symbol of the Dominican Peter Martyr of Verona. Near him a Saint with lily on his shoulder, like Saint Dominic, but both with a white (Carmelite) cloak!
Is that for the colour on the painting or a sign of the celestial situation?

Tempera on panel in form of a timpano, 85x168cm.
Preserved in the Museo del Castello Sforzesco, Milano,
since 1934.

In 1498, Queen Leonora of Portugal created the first Misericórdia (House of Mercy) in Lisboa. A charitable, Church-run institution, it became the model for many other institutions known as Santas Casas (Holy Houses), that soon spread throughout Portugal and its overseas territories (a 1994 estimate counted 500 of these institutions in Portugal). For many centuries, and to a certain extent even today, the Misericórdias would be the most visible face of philanthropy (charity) in Portugal. It is only in the XIX century that a more secular and liberal inspired form of philanthropy takes hold.
