Italian, Siena, second half 15th century
VIRGIN AND CHILD

Catalogue Note

The softly flowing drapery and relaxed contrapposto of this enchanting Virgin and Child find parallels in the work of the Sienese sculptor Neroccio di Martolommeo di Benedetto (1447-1500). Compare also the long, parallel folds of earlier works from Siena such as the Virgin in San Pietro in Volterra (Schubring, op. cit., fig. 29).
