Though Michelangelo did not consider himself as a painter, even going so far as to sign letters, “Michelangelo, the Sculptor,” his paintings are considered to be among Western Art's most important and magnificent works.

The Madonna and Child with St John and Angels (c. 1495-1497) is a painting in tempera on wood by Michelangelo during his first period in Rome. The painting is unfinished and describes the meeting of Virgin Mary and the Child Jesus with Christ's cousin St John the Baptist, on the Holy Family's Flight into Egypt. The Virgin is depicted with one breast bared, as if she has recently been suckling her infant son; recalling the theme of the Virgin breastfeeding common in medieval painting. In her hands is a book which she attempts to hold away from her son, the contents of which may have foretold his future sacrifice. She looks over her left shoulder onto a scroll being read by a pair of angels; most likely to be the scroll reading Ecce Agnus Dei ('Behold the Lamb of God'), usually an attribute of John the Baptist. The figures are arranged as if in a frieze, revealing Michelangelo's sculptor's instinct. The frieze becomes more convex at its center with the figures of Virgin and Child, as in the later Pitti Tondo. Another similarity to relief sculpture is in the plain background: rather than the landscapes more common for exterior settings, Michelangelo has simply painted an expanse of sky. He also eschewed the richly-decorated throne typical of sacra conversazione altarpieces, and de-emphasized the angels' wings. Many areas of the painting are in a preliminary state; the black of the Virgin's robe was meant to be overpainted with the rich blue pigment lapis lazuli, and the angels on the left are indicated only by the green underpaint used for flesh tones. The Madonna and Child with St John and Angels is one of three surviving panel paintings housed in the UK National Gallery in London.

La Virgen es representada con un seno desnudo, como si ella ha sido cochinillo recientemente su hijo; Recordando el tema de la Virgen amamantando común en la pintura medieval. En sus manos es un libro que intenta mantenerlo alejado de su hijo, cuyo contenido puede haber predicho su futuro sacrificio. Mira sobre su hombro izquierdo en un rollo de ser leído por un par de Ángeles; más probable que el pergamino leyendo Ecce Agnus Dei (' he aquí el cordero de Dios '), generalmente un atributo de Juan el Bautista. Las figuras están dispuestas como si en un friso, revelando Michelangelo ' escultor s ' instinto s. El friso se convierte más convexo en su centro con las figuras de la Virgen y el niño, como en la posterior Pitti Tondo. Otra similitud a la escultura en relieve es en el fondo llano: en lugar de los paisajes más comunes para configuración de exteriores, Miguel Ángel ha pintado simplemente una extensión del cielo. También evitó el trono ricamente decorado típico de retablos sacra conversazione y restado énfasis los Ángeles ' alas. Muchas áreas de la pintura están en un informe preliminar estado; el negro de la Virgen ' bata s estaba destinado a ser pintada con el rico pigmento azul lapislázuli, y los Ángeles de la izquierda se indican solamente por el underpaint verde utilizado para tonos de piel. La Virgen y el niño con San Juan y los Ángeles es uno de los tres sobrevivientes pinturas del panel ubicados en el UK National Gallery de Londres.
