Madonna, Infant Child, Elizabeth, and St. John, (painting)
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 17
"This picture was long a distinguished ornament in the Aldobrandini Palace at Rome, and acknowledged to be one of the finest productions of Andrea's pencil. It is a composition delightfully simple, in which natural and familiar incidents, combined with propriety of expression, appeal directly to our feelings. The infantine playfulness of gesture in the young Christ is peculiarly attractive; the air of the virgin's head, and the beauty of her countenance, are finely contrasted with the more marked character and general contour of the aged Elizabeth."
