Antonio, da Negroponte (Active second half of the 15th century)
Madonna and Child EnthronedDate: c. 1455
Museum: San Francesco della Vigna
Supplement of technique: Egg tempera on panel,
Size: 300 x 235 cm,
Notes: This magnificent life-size altarpiece, the only confirmed work by the artist, stands halfway between the aesthetic world of Gothic realism and Renaissance revival of classical antiquity.
With a refined naturalistic taste, the painter painstakingly depicted the espalier of roses in the background and the many kind of birds in the foreground. The throne of the Virgin is a complicated structure, with classical details absorbed into a fantastic and eclectic whole.
The lunette, depicting God the Father, was added at the beginning of the sixteenth century by a Francesco Bissolo, a follower of Giovanni Bellini.
