PINTORICCHIO , active 1481; died 1513

The Virgin and Child

Date: late 15th century
Medium: Tempera on wood
Dimensions: 53.5 x 35.5 cm
Acquisition credit: Presented by Queen Victoria at the Prince Consort's wish, 1863

The Virgin Mary and the Christ Child are seen through a painted stone frame or window.The Virgin tenderly embraces Christ. The Child adopts a more formal pose, standing upright and raising his right hand to bless the viewer. Attached to this in the lower centre is an unidentified coat of arms, presumably that of the original owner of the painting.

Pintoricchio depicts mother and child with characteristic sweetness, a feature of his work that partly accounts for his great success in Perugia, and other cities, during the 1490s.
