Bartolomeo Montagna: 'The Virgin and Child'

Explore the paintings

This painting reflects the influence of Giovanni Bellini, by whom Montagna was probably trained. The sombre colours (now darker than was intended), the severe geometry of the setting, and the sharp definition of the drapery are typical of his work.
