PROPERTY FROM A BELGIAN PRIVATE COLLECTION
oil on copper
The present painting is a copy after a drawing by Raphael, most likely dating between 1504–08, today in the Louvre, Paris (inv. no. 3949).1 The drawing does not relate to any known paintings by the artist, although many copies and engravings exist. This type of tender scene, which shows the Christ Child and Saint John interacting whilst in the arms of their respective mothers Mary and Elizabeth, was hugely popular throughout the 16th century.
