Virgin Mary seated with Christ Child. Carved, polychrome and gilt oak wood sculpture. Italian school. Early 15th century.
Marvellous example of late gothic Italian imagery. The Virgin Mary is seated on a throne, contemplating the Christ Child with a sweet demeanour. The Child is on Mary’s lap playing with a dove, which is holding His left thumb in its beak. Jesus is holding up the other arm in a gesture of surprise. Faults and repaints. Origin: Formerly from a collection belonging to Antoni Batlló "El Conventet", Barcelona. Bibliography: appears in the catalogue for the "Christmas in Sedunión" exhibition which took place in Barcelona in December 1978. 131 x 54 x 33 cm.
