1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 1
"The works of Raffaello possess, in a superlative degree, the beauties of form, character, and expression; in this specimen of the master these qualities are in perfect unison; the clear serenity of the sky and the tender tone of the colouring are so well adapted to the tranquility of the group; the drapery is arranged with a commendable decorum. The endearing playfulness of filial fondness is a transcript of nature; while the mild, modest, downcast eyes of the madonna exemplify the genuine humility of virtue." [P. 1.]
