Questions about this piece?


After Correggio's acclaimed and highly influentual masterpiece, the Madonna della Scodella, this beautiful and very large porcelain plaque was made by the Royal Vienna Porcelain Manufactory in the nineteeth century.

Honoring the original, which nows hang in the Galleria Nazionale di Parma and was executed c.1528-30, it shows the Sacred Family in an episode from the apocryphal Gospel of Pseudo-Matthew, where they are fed thanks to tree that miraculously unfurls and provides them with fruit. The painting was acclaimed as far back as Giorgio Vasari in the his 'Lives of the Artists'; Antonio da Correggio was an important painter of the Italian High Renaissance, who prefigured the Baroque, greatly influencing the art of later periods.

This fine piece is executed with great skill, conveying the artistic qualities of the great Italian master fully. The plaque has a beehive mark to the reverse, and is set within a giltwood frame.
