SASSOFERRATO , 1609 - 1685

The Virgin and Child Embracing

Date: 1660-85
Medium: Oil on canvas
Dimensions: 97.2 x 74 cm
Acquisition credit: Bought, 1864

Saint Joseph is visible in the landscape seen in the left background, beyond the Virgin and Child.

The design is based closely on an etching by Guido Reni, who was a major influence on Sassoferrato. The picture is likely to be a late work and possibly it was among a group of pictures in Sassoferrato's studio at his death.
