Raphael (1483-1520), The Virgin and Child
 (голосов: 0)
Some of the world’s greatest works of art depict religious imagery. The image of the Virgin Mary holding Christ her son, has been drawn, painted and sculpted by artists thousands of times.

This cartoon (full-size preparatory drawing) was made by the Italian Renaissance artist Raphael and corresponds to a painting by him, known as the Mackintosh Madonna, now in the National Gallery, London. The painting has been damaged and heavily restored, but this black chalk drawings gives us an excellent idea of what it originally looked like. The figures of the Mother and Child are rranged in a pyramidal composition recalling the drawings and paintings of Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael’s older contemporary, which he studied while he was in Florence. The forms in this drawing, however, are fuller and more solid.
