Omschrijving
Icoon, Maagd en kind, Madonna Eleusa of van tederheid, originele lijst (1) - Houten tablet - 17e eeuw
middellandse Zee

The painting features compositional modules from Madonna Eleusa and the Tenderness, widespread during the first half of the 12th century. Mary is pressing the child’s cheek again her own, while Jesus’ hand is around his mother’s neck, with a gesture that is as gentle as expressive, natural and intimate. The face is one of the most delicate and exposed parts of the human body. The gesture of resting a cheek against someone else’s cheek removes every defensive barrier and expresses infinite love. This model was also to become popular in the West and in Italy, where it was introduced at the beginning of the 13th century and assimilated into the sacred repertoire. In case of sale outside Italy, I will need to obtain the document of free movement, which has already been requested to the artistic heritage authorities. Please view the photos carefully. The artwork will be packaged and securely shipped with tracking number.
