The Madonna and Child with Two Angels is a painting by the Italian Renaissance master Fra Filippo Lippi, dating to c. 1468-1469. It is housed in the Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte, in Naples.

This works was once attributed to Filippino Lippi, master of Botticelli. The typology of the faces and other details induce to date the work to the same period of the Fortitude and the other juvenile Madonnas of the Italian painter. The composition is similar to Verrocchio's Madonna of the Milk, dating from the late 1460s.
