Madonna and Child

Benedetto da Maiano Italian

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 604

This Madonna, though quite stained (probably as the result of zealous cleanings involving the use of oil), preserves a rare feature in the imitation textile pattern that adorns the back and gives the group added relief.
