LORENZO di Credi , about 1458 - 1537

The Virgin and Child


Date: about 1480-5
Medium: Oil on wood
Dimensions: 71.1 x 49.5 cm
Acquisition credit: Bought, 1857

This picture was probably painted in Florence in the late 1480s or early 1490s. Credi was much influenced by Leonardo da Vinci (1452 - 1519) who had been with him in the workshop of Verrocchio (about 1435 - 1488). The Archangel Raphael appears in the distance with Tobias. Raphael was venerated as a saint and may have been added to what was a popular composition at the request of the patron.
