What a fine icon of antiquity!    This mid 18th C. Painting of the Madonna with Child celebrates the artistic and spiritual beauty of the Rococo Fine Art period... "The seated Madonna and Child is a style of image that became particularly popular during the 15th century in Florence and was imitated elsewhere. These representations are usually of a small size suitable for a small altar or domestic use. They usually show Mary holding the infant Jesus in an informal and maternal manner."  This great work of art is 33"w x 39"h and is valued at  $7,900.00.  View more exquisite works by visiting Country French Interiors on Latique.com!
