The Madonna of the Chair
The Madonna of the Chair is an Italian tapestry based on artwork by the renaissance artist Raphael. It depicts Mary embracing the child, Christ, while the young John the Baptist devoutly watches. It is now in the Palazzo Pitti collection in Florence. Painted during his Roman period, this Madonna does not have the strict geometrical form and linear style of his earlier Florentine treatments of the same subject. Instead, the warmer colors seem to suggest the influence of Titian and Raphael's rival Sebastiano del Piombo. Maria Montessori, Italian doctor and teaching pioneer, wrote that it was her wish that the Madonna della Seggiola (Madonna of the Chair) hang in each Children's House (Montessori school).
This Italian tapestry is lined and has a tunnel for ease of hanging - we provide tapestry hanging information with each order.
