Observations

Sassoferrato's compositions of the Madonna in Prayer are amongst his most celebrated images and this previously unknown painting is amongst the best versions to come to the market. Professor François Macé de Lepinay endorsed the attribution to Sassoferrato based on photographs. The present painting, however, is so carefully and exquisitely painted that although its early history is unknown one can suppose it must have been an important commission for the artist. Sassoferrato constantly varied the details of his Madonnas in the drapery, the tilt of head, the facial expressions and in his use of shadow. Of the other known variants of this type, the Madonna with her head down, gazing lower left, hands half visible, clasped in prayer, clad in a simple red robe, white veil and blue over mantle.
