The Granduca Madonna

  Buy now from barewalls.com1504: Galleria Palatina (Palazzo Pitti), Florence

Raphael's Madonnas have had enormous appeal from the time they were made, and as a subject category they still remain among his most attractive and engaging pictures. This threee-quarter-length Mary easily blaances the Christ Child in her arms as she looks down beyond the spectator; the child's gaze is more direct and more penetrating - the result is a simple, silent, effortless image that, once encountered, is virtually impossible to forget.
