Hand painted Limoges Pate Sur Pate french Plaque Porcelain Madonna Of The Chair
Gorgeous rendition of Raphael's Madonna della Seggiola (Sedia), also known as Madonna of the Chair, ione of Raphael's most intimate Madonna paintings. The 1514 image of Raphael's Madonnas sits closely confined within the circular tondo format affectionately and protectively cuddling her young son, the infant Christ child. Raphael painted this Madonna while in Rome where it was soon acquired for the art collection of the Medici family. This depiction of Madonna and Child was painted during or shortly after Raphael's work on the Vatican Stanza d'Eliodoro. It appears that the model is the same one Raphael used for his Donna Velata portrait of 1514. In beautiful condition bit has some spots where glazing is dark.
