Catalogue Note

Depicting one of the most iconic images of the love between a mother and child, this refined canvas follows Raphael’s famed Madonna della Sedia in the Galleria Palatina, Florence.1  It is set within an elaborately carved giltwood frame that also closely emulates the original in Florence.
