Ferrarese School, 15th century
THE MADONNA AND CHILD

Provenienza(e)

Bruno Canto, Milan;
In the present collection since at least 1963.

Nota a catalogo

This charming and highly stylized Madonna and Child follows the composition of a panel in the Cambò collection, Barcelona, which is thought to be the work either of Francesco del Cossa or the Master of the Boston Desco.While the hand of this anonymous painter is very different to that in the Cambò panel, the design and poses of the central figures are almost identical.  In the present painting, the artist has omitted the angel at right and exchanged the rosebush background for a window opening onto a skyscape, framing the composition with a draped brocade curtain.
