A photograph of a replica of the so-called Madonna di Loreto by Raphael (c.1511) now in the Musée Condé, Chantilly (inv. no.68; see RCIN 850869). Not listed in Ruland (1876).

The composition is known from many painted versions. Ruland thought that the original painting by Raphael either had disappeared or was the one then in the possession of Sir Kennedy Laurie, Florence (now in the Morgan Library and Museum, New York, inv. no.AZ 139).

Showing the Virgin holding a veil over the Christ Child, with St Joseph standing on the right.
