This is a bold study of the Virgin kneeling in adoration beside the cradle containing the Infant Christ.

It seems to be related to a panel of Moretto's predella in teh Sacristy of the Church of SS Nazzaro e Celso at Brescia, to which it corresponds not only in feeling but also in size. It is on bluish-grey paper squared for transfer.

Provenance

Mrs Frances L Evans.
