Virgin with the Child
(Virgen con el Niņo)
ORIGINAL SIZE: 33" X 25.6"
This painting was donated by Pablo Bosch to the Museum of El Prado. Representing the Virgin mother gently,
delicately holding her child.
The painting reflects the adaptation of descriptive forms of the early Renaissance, and also the Spanish mysticism of that epoch. Examples are the expressions, and the technique of contrasting dark and light.
This painting also reveals a profound religious feeling, incorporating the manieristic style (probably influenced by the Dutch painters he worked with).
