The Madonna and Child with Saints

Several versions of this composition are known. The Virgin and Child are shown with the young Saint John the Baptist, Saint Paul with his traditional attribute of a sword, and Saint Catherine of Siena shown as a Dominican tertiary holding a lily.

It has been attributed to either or both of the Brescianino brothers, but is closely related to pictures otherwise given to Andrea.
