Madonna and Child

Probably after Lorenzo Ghiberti Italian

Not on view

This composition is apparently a variant of another Madonna relief which Ghiberti designed specifically to be molded and reproduced in painted stucco. See 08.22.3 for a painted stucco version of that composition. The type of base derives from the niche of the Parte Guelfa on Or San Michele by Donatello, finished in 1423. See 07.120.3 for a terracotta version of this composition.
