19th century Reproduction of Raphael´s Madonna del Cardellino,dated 1825 and signed

Very fine reproduction of Raphael´s Madonna del Cardelino ( Madonna of the Goldfinch). The painting is of outstanding craftmanship and in perfect condition. There have been no repairs of any kind. It is painted oil on canvas , signed by C.Paust and dated 1825. It is set in a magnificent gilded wooden frame which is very detailed crafted. The Madonna of the Goldfinch is a painting by the Italian Renaissance artist Raphael (1483-1520). In this painting, as in most of the Madonna´s of his Florentine period, Raphael arranged the three figures- Mary, Christ and the young John the Baptist- to fit into a geometrical design: together they form an almost regular triangle. The Virgin holds a book which identifies Her as SEDES SAPIENTIAE ( abode of wisdom) , St. JOHN holds a goldfinch , which- because it feeds among thorns- recalls the crown of thorns which Christ was given before His crucifixion and Christ reaches to stroke it.
