Madonna and Child with The Infant Saint John the Baptist

Lorenzo di Credi
(Florence c. 1457 - 1536)

Now agreed to be a masterpiece of Lorenzo di Credi, the work was long considered to have been by Leonardo. Despite the evident adherence to Leonardesque schemes, visible above all in the triangular compositional structure and in the background landscape, the painting displays the typical features of Credi’s art. Rather than focusing on creating atmosphere, he favoured a clear-cut and incisive rendering of the design and an analytic approach to reality.
