Maria mit Kind

Maria mit Kind

More about this artwork
The well-known image of the Madonna with bared breast ("del latte") is combined here with the Madonna of Humility ("dell' umilità"): Maria sits on a low cushion, yet the position of her left leg shows that she is partially kneeling. The depiction of God the Father and the Dove of the Holy Ghost widen the scope of this painting to a representation of the Holy Trinity.
