Sienese School, Circa 1570
MADONNA AND CHILD WITH SAINT JOHN THE BAPTIST AND SAINT CATHERINE OF SIENA

Catalogue Note

This painting relates to Domenico Beccafumi's Holy family with Saint John and Saint Catherine of Siena, formerly in the collection of Rudolph Lepke, Berlin.1 However, the two compositions have noted differences. In this painting, the Madonna is gazing out, engaging with the viewer, while in Beccafumi’s painting her face is looking down.
