After Fra Bartolommeo (1472 - 1517)

The Virgin and Child, surrounded by Saints

Probably post 1579 to 1673

Oil on copper

Height: 48cm
Width: 38cm

Museum number: P150

Curatorial note

A copy after 'La Vierge aux Saints' (the Carondelet Madonna), an altar piece in Besancon Cathedral (1512). There are a number of copies in existence and this one cannot be precisely dated. It is probably later than the 1570s but before 1674 because it shows a figure of S. Medeleine added to the original altarpiece in the 1570s but removed c.1674.

Provenance help-art-provenance

The painting was acquired in or before 1804 when Soane paid (18 May 1804) for having a 'picture on copper, sacred history' cleaned.
