Francesco Bonsignori: 'The Virgin and Child with Four Saints'

Explore the paintings

The four saints are not identifiable, although, the one on the left with a book is probably a Franciscan. The group of the Virgin and Child is derived in reverse, except for the hands, from an engraving by Mantegna. The frieze-like composition is probably also a reminiscence of Mantegna, and the picture is acceptable as a comparatively late work.
