Painting, Renaissance, XIX

According to Raphael, The Virgin in the Chair or Madonna della Seggiola.

The Virgin Mary holds the infant Jesus in her arms, both look at the viewer while the infant Saint John the Baptist, holding his cross, adores the messiah.

The Virgin wears an ornate shawl over her shoulders, a great tenderness emerges from her gaze.

Beautiful oil on canvas. This large tondo is framed by an important gilt frame à la mecca, measuring 96 by 96 cm. Mecca gilding is an Italian technique consisting of the application of silver rather than gold leaves, subsequently covered with a golden varnish called mecca. It is this typical Italian process that produces this pale gilding with silver reflections.

Italian school, Tuscany region. Period early nineteenth century.
