Bagatti Valsecchi Museum

Bagatti Valsecchi Museum
Milano, Italy

The marble relief of the Madonna and Christ Child, whose composition and style finds frequent parallels in the Florentine work of Donatello, was purchased by Fausto and Giuseppe Bagatti Valsecchi to decorate their family mansion in the late 19th century in Milan in the Renaissance style. As are all other objects in the museum, it still is displayed in its original place in the home, and thus contributes to the "authentic time capsule" ambiance. The museum collections include paintings by the Bellini brothers, Zenale, Giampietrino and others, sculptures, furnishings and furniture, majolica, glass, arms, armor, objets d'art in various media, wrought iron daily objects, scientific and musical instruments, tapestries and gilded metal objects.
