The Virgin with child after Raffaelo (25,5 cm x 26,5 cm)
Calcium low-relief, religious scene inspired by the famous painting « Virgin on a chair » by Raffaelo (1483-1520) Italian master of classicism.
That scene represents the Virgin Mary seated holding in her arms her child Jesus : by her side John the Baptist is looking at them devotedly with his reed cross in his hands. The extremely smooth finish obtained by slowly-accumulated carbonates reveals the craftsman’s mastery of calcium to make all the details that magnify that interpretation of Raffaelo’s original artwork.
Limestone cast. Wood frame.
