Alma-Tadema and Victorian Painting
in the Pérez-Simón Collection
From 25 June to 12 October 2014 (extended closing date)
Circular work attributed to Piero di Cosimo which offers us in perfect composition a traditional theme: The Virgin with the Child, with a landscape in the background and two angels that are contemplating him devoutly. Seeing this work we can understand the popularity of this artist, since, as well as the quality achieved in the treatment of volumes, fabrics and colouring, a special grace emerges from the image, marked by the interplay of looks and the sweet expression of the faces.
