Devotional Plaque with the "Madonna of the Fish"


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description This composition reproduces a famous painting of the Virgin and Child by Raphael (1483-1520) known as the Madonna of the Fish (now in the Prado Museum, Madrid, Spain), which was widely known from engravings made after it. As described in the biblical Book of Tobit, the young Tobias, assisted by the archangel Raphael, cured his father Tobit's blindness with the gallbladder of a fish (hence the fish in his right hand).
