Madonna and Child

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