Virgin and Child with The Infant Saint John the Baptist

Francesco di Cristofano called Franciabigio
(Florence 1484 - 1525)

The panel was probably among the works confiscated from the Cavalier d’Arpino. Initially attributed to the school of Raphael, it was later acknowledged to be by Franciabigio. It is a youthful piece in which the artist, reviving the Florentine tradition of the circular format, inserted the holy group within a vast landscape in the light of recent versions of the theme by Raphael: the Madonna del Prato, the Madonna of the Goldfinch and the La Belle Jardinière.
