"Giovanni Battista Salvi. Sassoferrato. (Sassoferrato, 1606- 1685.) Mater dolorosa. 21 x 28. Original (no. 191) in the Uffizi Gallery, Florence. The above title, meaning the 'sorrowful mother,' is applied to the virgin when contemplating the sufferings of her son, and is probably borrowed from the ecclesiastical poem, the first line of which ends with those words, and which is known all over the world through rossini's incompArable music. This is a good copy."
