The Virgin and Child

This fresco fragment is traditionally thought to come from the church at Magrè, near Schio, Vicenza. This information is recorded in an inscription on the frame which appears to have been made for the painting when it belonged to Layard and may reflect some evidence which is now no longer extant (or known). The attribution to Montagna has not been confirmed.
