Madonna and Child


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description There are only a handfull of paintings known today that are considered to be by th paduan master Squarcione: signed paintings in Padua and Berlin as well as two very similar images of the Madonna and Child, this one in the Walters and a similar one in slightly better condition in a private collection. The artist is best known today for his collection of antiquities and his large workshop in the 1440s and 1450s. In the 1440s his pupils or assistants ranged from Andrea Mantegan, who went on to be one of the most important painters of the 1400s to the little known Dario da Pordone, to whom the monumental paintings depicting the Adduction of Helen (37.1178-1180) are now attributed.
