Holy Families & Madonna and Child

Holy Families & Madonna and Child


The Virgin and Child


Carbon print, on coloured paper | 20.7 x 16.5 cm (sheet of paper) | RCIN 851204

A photograph of a drawing currently in the Gabinetto Disegni e Stampe degli Uffizi, Florence (inv. no.498E). Formerly attributed to Raphael, the drawing is now thought to be a copy after a lost original study by Raphael.

Other copies of the same composition with the addition of the Infant Baptist are in the British Museum, London (inv. nos.Ff.I-38 and 1895-9-15-626). Another very similar drawing - catalogued by Ruland (1876) as being then in the collection of the 'Academy at Milan' - is currently untraced (see RCIN 851206).

The photograph shows the full-length Virgin, seated almost in profile to left, holding the naked Christ Child on her lap.
