Lazzaro Bastiani: 'The Virgin and Child'

Explore the paintings

This painting is badly worn away. A goldfinch, symbolising the Passion, is shown held captive on a string. The infant Christ is fully dressed: some altarpieces in which the Child is similarly well covered were said to have been commissioned for nuns.
