Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 28
Born near Urbino, A.D. 1605--died A.D. 1685 aged 80. This artist studied the works of Guido, Albano, Baroccio and Raffaele. His subjects generally represent the Virgin and infant Christ, and he seldom has more than two figures in his pictures. DESCRIPTION. This beautiful head of the Madonna possesses great sweetness of expression. The drapery is cast in a masterly style, and the colouring is very pleasing and not unlike to Guido. [P. 30.]
