Madonna with Child

Venetian painter

Sforzesco Castle

Sforzesco Castle

Tempera on unprepared canvas was a technique used mainly for moveable objects, such as processional banners, or the furnishings of the oratories of brotherhoods. The work was certainly destined for a public venue, as the inscription mentioning the client notes: Michele di Giacomo Lazzaroni di Averara. The painting, done by a Venetian painter, is of fairly modest workmanship but astounds with the subtle illusionistic artifice with which the inlaid wood and marble frame is depicted.
