Antonio de Solario: 'The Virgin and Child with Saint John'

Explore the paintings

The Virgin and Child and the young Saint John the Baptist are seen in a domestic interior. Saint John holds a reed cross and a scroll inscribed with words from his Gospel (New Testament, John 1: 29 and 36). The Christ Child holds a bird on a string.

The painting demonstrates Solario's Venetian training and is probably an early work.
