Michele Tosini: 'Charity'

Explore the paintings

Charity, one of the theological virtues together with Faith and Hope, is here represented as a woman with three children. From the 16th century onwards, Charity was commonly depicted as a woman suckling her young.

This picture derives from Francesco Salviati's larger picture of the subject (Florence, Uffizi) and was previously catalogued as by a follower of Salviati.
