Madonna and Child Esteban Murillo Print of 1650 Portrait Gold Gilt or Gesso Wooden Florentine Frame
SALE I recently bought two Religious Art prints made from Early portraits, and this one of "Madonna and Child" made from the original 1650 portrait by Murillo is one of the two. They were a part of a wall grouping, but this one and the other in a couple of pictures stood out to me. Framed in a Gold Gilt or Gesso wooden frame, this beautiful print is under glass and it measures app. 6 1/2" x 5 1/8". The Virgin Mary is embracing Baby Jesus and it is just lovely.
I love the oval frame in gold with detail around the outer edge as well as around the print itself. Otherwise it has a very simple design that is perfect for such a lovely religious portrayal of Mary and Jesus. I would say it is probably Made in Italy like so many of the Florentine framed pictures were, but at sometime, the owner has added tape to secure the cardboard backing that was holding the picture in, so I can't see any marking. The other one in the picture of The Infant Samuel praying does say Made in Italy on the back of it, and other than this one being in a less ornate frame, the look is very similar. The two look lovely together, but they are being sold separately. If you want both of them, I will take less for the pair. You won't be disappointed to add these to your collection of Florentine Italian Religious Art, or just your collection of paintings of Madonna and Child.
