Holy Families & Madonna and Child

The Virgin and Child with St Elizabeth and St John the Baptist ['The Madonna of the Palm Tree']


Engraving | RCIN 850926

This engraving is a copy in the same direction of a print by Marcantonio Raimondi, the subject of which is traditionally known as 'The Madonna of the Palm Tree'. The composition is probably derived from a lost design by Raphael related to the so-called ‘Madonna del Divino Amore’ (c.1516), a painting now in the Museo e Gallerie Nazionali di Capodimonte, Naples (inv. no.146), the execution of which is ascribed to Raphael's workshop. For an impression of Marcantoino's engraving, see RCIN 850925. A photograph of the 'Madonna del Divino Amore' can be found at RCIN 850910.

Showing the Virgin seating on the ground with St Elizabeth at her side and holding the Christ Child on her legs, who blesses the Young St John the Baptist who kneels down before Him; in a landscape.
  • Added to the Prince Consort's Raphael Collection (c.1853-76)
