Follower of Joos van Cleeve.

The Virgin and the Nursing Child.

The Antwerp school painting, "Madolla del latte".

Iconography originated in the 14th century, when the Virgin was seen more human in art, as a mother who was no longer a medieval queen on the throne, but a mother who was breastfeeding her child in the family private environment.


As in other examples of Renaissance painting from Northern Europe, on the windowsill we see fruits: apple, pear, an open walnut.

Madonna wears a veil similar to a turban.

The child, depicted with a plump anatomy, looks at the viewer of the image with a keen gaze.

Maria focuses on her son and looks at him with eyes almost half closed, eyelids and eyebrows painted in a very graphic and refined manner.

A very human Madonna, therefore, full of tenderness but not without the precautions and the fashionable attention of the prototype of the feminine beauty of the moment.

Notes on condition: the paint was cleaned of old repaints and old darkened protective varnish. There is a pictorial touch-up on the front of the Maddona and small touch-ups on the clothes and the background. The face and body of the baby Jesus are almost intact.

XIX century frame in painted wood.
