TIZIANO Vecellio
(b. 1490, Pieve di Cadore, d. 1576, Venezia)

Madonna and Child with Sts Catherine and Dominic and a Donor

Oil on canvas, 138 x 185 cm
Fondazione Magnani Rocca, Mamiano di Traversetolo

This painting is much larger and more ambitious than Titian's other works from this early period. Notable is the monumental contrapposto of the Virgin seen from low down.
