More about this artwork
Titian’s painting depicts the enthroned Virgin and Child accompanied by saints and by donors from the Pesaro family. In 1855 Jacob Burckhardt described this, the artist’s principal religious work, as the ‘most important and most beautiful of all presentation paintings, in which Titian set for the entire subsequent period a new standard in the approach to such subjects with regard to pictorial laws governing sequences of groups and colours in open, airy space’. When making his copy, Wolf had to contend with the poor lighting conditions in the church and the original’s imperfect state of preservation.
