Oil on canvas

Technique: Oil on canvas
Period: 18th century
Condition: In very good condition
Title of artwork: Madonna leggente con Bambino
Signature: Not signed

Size: 50 x 60 cm - with frame 55 x 64 cm
“Madonna and child by the Roman school of the 18th century” (this is the description given by the auction house where the work has been purchased).
The canvas is in excellent condition in a simple and beautiful coeval frame. The theme of the “reading Virgin”, is dear to the painting of the 15th and 16th centuries, where the Virgin is painted holding the book in the company of the child, the book being always synonym of Wisdom but, sometimes, also with that of the Liturgy of the hours. The model for the three-quarters to the left face is very reminiscent of the Madonna del Sassoferrato and the idea of the book were perhaps in the Madonna del Cardellino by Raphael that has also, as here, the white-bordered red robe, with many folds of soft chiaroscuro. The light seems bathing the characters themselves spreading mystically also on the surrounding environment.
The painting was cleaned and reupholstered.
