The Virgin lovingly reaches out to her Child, her tenderness accentuated by her lithe anatomy. Rendered in flickering patterns of pale pinks, the figures are vividly set off against the greyish-blue sky and the angular, stage set-like structure. The picture is partly unfinished, perhaps when Parmigianino had to leave Rome during the French invasion of 1527.
