Italian, circa 1500
RELIEF WITH THE VIRGIN AND CHILD

Catalogue Note

This beautiful stucco relief with the Virgin and Child recalls the celebrated Madonna and Child models created by Donatello. Compare in particular with the Verona Madonna, named after a stucco on the corner of the Via delle Fogge in Verona, and which exists in various versions including one in the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (Darr, op. cit., no. 15). The model is believed to have been executed during Donatello's Paduan period. It is possible that, like the Verona Madonna, the present stucco has a Northern Italian origin.
