Pax: The Madonna of Foligno

Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description The Master K.I.P. is known to us only by his signed initials, his actual identity remaining unclear. His work reveals the direct influence of Italian models-this composition being copied after an engraving by Marcantonio Raimondi, who in turn copied a painting by Raphael. A pax was a liturgical object which was kissed by the celebrating priest and then passed among the congregation during the Mass.
