Object description :

"The Madonna With Carnations - Italian School Seventeenth Century"
Oil on canvas / wood Presented in a rare frame of the same period in black molded wood, carved with golden acanthus leaves in the corners. Dimensions with frame: 58 x 50 cm Executed by an Italian artist at the hinge of the sixteenth and seventeenth century, this little painting of devotion was painted for the contemplation of its original owner, its dimensions to be held in her hand. It shows the Virgin and Child sitting in a bedroom (the curtain is curled behind the head of the Virgin) with a sunny landscape seen through a window. They are recovering flowers from each other, carnations that are the symbol of marriage and later of passion - describing the Virgin Mary as being not only the mother but also the bride of Christ. Taking a painting from Raphael, he transforms this familiar subject into something totally new. The mother and son are no longer posed rigidly and formally, as in the paintings of previous artists, but now displays all the tender emotions that can be expected between a young mother and her child. Raphael's painting is itself freely based on a famous composition of Leonardo da Vinci (the "Madonna Benois" at the Hermitage of St. Petersburg). Raphael painted the panel shortly before leaving Florence for Rome. It is then kept in the Camuccini collection in Italy. Sold with invoice & certificate
