Lorenzo di Credi: 'The Virgin and Child'

This picture was probably painted in Florence in the early 1480s. Credi was much influenced by Leonardo da Vinci who had been with him in the workshop of Verrocchio.

The Archangel Raphael appears in the distance with Tobias. Raphael was venerated as a saint and may have been added to what was a popular composition at the request of the patron.
