Virgin and Child crowned,
Painting on canvas
More recent solid wood frame (XIXth century)
The virgin is represented in a cloudy atmosphere, outside the terrestrial world,
the infant Jesus in her arms.
A pair of colorful putti crown it.
It is surprising to find here the "Coronation of the Virgin" at the same time as a "Virgin and Child".
The technics is still part of a tradition of the Italian masters of the 13th and 14th century with a tendency for soft colors and pastel tones.
The "monochrome" background subtly reveals a divine halo around Mary.
The infant Jesus, faithful to the Quattrocento pictorial tradition, is depicted in a rather old fashion.
The softness of the faces, the gestures, and especially the hands testify to the painter's subtlety, which moreover drew all his attention in this work; plastic sobriety actually gives a central importance to the subject: the Marian figure, her coronation and her son.
The whole in excellent condition.
