Workshop of Giovanni BELLINI , about 1435 - 1516

The Virgin and Child


Date: perhaps about 1475
Medium: Oil on wood
Dimensions: 81.9 x 62.2 cm
Acquisition credit: Bequeathed by Lady Lindsay, 1912

The painting seems to be a comparatively early work of the studio. The composition of the Virgin in prayer before her Child has been adapted from that of larger paintings of the Nativity, but the Child is here placed on a marble ledge as was commonplace in Venetian devotional paintings for the home.
