Madonna Delle Roccie A Grand Tour Souvenir
The miniature is a copy of the famous work by Fra Lippi. The artist captures the beauty and stillness of the young Madonna so successfully rendered in the original. Judging by the case we suggest circa 1875 although the miniature may be older. It is of far better quality than usual.
The miniature is presented in its original case. Like a travelling alarm clock, it opens and supports the image. Devotional works dedicated to the mother of Jesus grew increasingly popular in the late 19th century. Equally the sitter is so lovely that she also merits a more secular consideration. This was bought by a well-off traveller hoping to prolonge his pleasure.
Miniature Painting size is 2.5" x 3.5"
This miniature is in first class condition. The case in which it comes and the interior material is somewhat worn.
