ROSITI, Giovanni Battista
(b. ca. 1475, Forli, d. 1545, Forli)

Madonna with Child

Tempera and oil on wood, 51 x 41 cm
Christian Museum, Esztergom

The painting is a variant of a painting (present location unknown) by Niccolò Rondinelli. Rondinelli was an assistant of Giovanni Bellini, and perhaps he used a now lost composition by Bellini as a model.

The present panel is one of the two authentic paintings by Rosetti. It is signed on the parapet below with Greek letters: "Joannes Baptista de Rositis Fotoloviensis pinxit theo toco - 1507".
