Madonna and Child with Saints and Donors

Attributed to Sebastiano del Piombo Italian

Not on view

This fine painting, with its rich colors and the soft, tonal modeling of the flesh tones, was most likely painted by the young Sebastiano del Piombo. A contemporary of Titian and almost his equal in talent, Sebastiano was an important presence in Venice before his departure for Rome in 1510. If this painting is by him it must be one of his earliest, as the composition is slightly awkward, and although many details are close to those of his later, certain works, it lacks their sophistication.
