"(Rafaello's master) this specimen is not to be considered as an historical representation, but a picture intended to be purely votive. the madonna kneels with modest dignity before the divine infant; whose future sufferings and ultimate dominion in heaven and on earth are figuratively expressed by the globe, surmounted on a cross, which he holds in his hand. An attendant angel de- voutly watches over him, ready to perform his will; and, above, is seen a celestial group, rejoicing in the birth of the child, who was to give life unto all nations, and to guide their feet in the way of peace." [P. 4.]
Gallery of Pictures, selected from the most admired productions of the Old Masters, Doggett's Repository, No. 16 Market-Street.
