Early XVI century.
Venetian school.

Madonna with child with St. John with idealized landscape background with mountains. 

Follower of Giovanni Bellini (1430-1516).

Oil on pine wood panel.

Dimentions: 57cm x 68cm x 6cm

Beautiful late Renaissance frame with flowers and vegetal scrolls made in carved, gilt and polychrome wood.

Horizontal composition with Saints on the first plan was elaborated by Venetian artist after Giovanni Bellini. 

St John holds a flag with a ribbon on which is written in Latin: "Ecce agnus ..", abbreviation of "Ecce Agnus dei" (this is the lamb of God).
The composition rather represents a sacred conversation, where the characters are represented out of real time: Christ and Saint John are represented of very different ages, while the gospel tells us about age differences of a few months.

So we are faced with an idealized and "metaphysical" vision, with the colors of the cold range that create an effect of abstraction. The painting certainly belongs to a precise area / artistic school: Veneto, mature Renaissance. But with a more provincial influence, which borders on the group of so-called "Venetian Madonnari". This group of paintings had a double characteristic: contact with refined Venetian painting and contacts with Greek painters, who brought Byzantine icon’s influences.

Conditions: profetionally cleaned and restored, with few paint repaints in lower part ( St. John’s hand)
