The Holy Family with the Infant St John the Baptist

Oil on canvas, 98 x 137 cm
Private collection

Although the present work is Venetian in character, the pose of the Madonna and Child, as well as the inclusion of the elaborate chair, is inspired by Raphael's celebrated painting of La Madonna della Sedia of 1513, today in the Galleria Palatina, Florence.

The painting is signed lower left: NICOLAUS. FRANGI/ PANIS. F.
