Madonna and Child

Adoption Number: 1977P227

Madonna and Child Enthroned with Saints and Donor

Giovanni Bellini, 1505

A vivid altarpiece painting by one of the world's most famous artists, this work is however something of a mystery. Nothing is known about the man who commissioned it, although the inclusion of full-length saints indicates an important patron and an expensive commission.

Suggested donation: £3,000.00
