The madonna is sitting on a cloud supported by angels with the Child sitting on her lap. On the lower left side is St. Francis, kneeling down, looking up towards the madonna. Sitting on the right side is San Giovanni Evangelista writing. Above are two flying angels holding up a crown on the Virgins head. In the middle, between the two saints is an angel holding above his head the words: SANTA MARIA/ DE CONSTANTINOPOLI. In the middle, at the bottom of the painting we see the glimpse of a city, not precisely painted. Perhaps Eboli.
