Madonna with Child
Raibolini Francesco called Francesco Francia, follower
Bologna c. 1450. - 1517)
A diligent work executed by one of the 220 disciples the sources attribute to Francia, the painting recycles the Bolognese artist’s formulas. The panel presents Mary with the Child, who – sitting on a cushion and in the act of blessing – curiously turns his gaze toward the exterior. Worthy of note is the little bird clasped in his left hand.
