Core Record

Title The Virgin and Child
Collection English Heritage (Wellington Museum, Apsley House)
Artist Italian School
Date Earliest possibly about 1590
Date Latest possibly about 1610
Description The church in the background appears to be a sixteenth-century building and in general terms the composition is Correggesque (cf. the Campori Madonna in Modena: C. Gould, The Paintings of Correggio, London, 1976, pl. 26A). The attribution to Lavinia Fontana (15521602) in the Wellington Catalogue is difficult to justify, though a date c. 1600 when the use of copper as a support had become widespread is conceivable.
Current Accession Number WM 16221948
