  • Madonna and Child, probably late 1480s
    Giovanni Bellini (Italian, Venetian, ca. 1429/34-1507)
    Oil on wood

    35 x 28 in. (88.9 x 71.1 cm)
    Rogers Fund, 1908 (08.183.1)

    This beautiful picture, probably painted in the late 1480s, is a work of Giovanni Bellini's maturity. Unusually, the cloth of honor behind the figures is off center, revealing a distant landscape that in its light and atmosphere anticipates the works of Giorgione and Titian. The fine Venetian frame dates from the early sixteenth century.

    This work of art also appears on Connections: Motherhood, Africa
