Madonna with child and Saint John Baptist.

early XVII

Size: H 52,5 x L 44cm

Technique: oil on board. Old painting depicting the Madonna sitting inside a Renaissance decor with the left column, a green velvet curtain in the background and a Venetian style window.
The painting has a beautiful patina and the clay corresponding to the 16th century.
This type of painting was made by painters from the Byzantine school, who lived on the islands dominated by the Venetians, following the conquest of Constantinople by the Turks.
The Veneto-Cretan school represents an interesting intersection between Byzantine trends and Renaissance sacred painting.
The format of this painting is unusually large for most of the works of this production, making it interesting for a collector looking for an almost intact work in his original condition.
