The painting depicts the most classic of Marian compositions. The Virgin gently supports her Child with her two protective hands.
Her eyes are turned towards the sky and express a veiled melancholy.
The little Jesus is masterfully portrayed in full body sitting on the lap of the Mother with a disenchanted gaze. Remarkable is the volumetric rendering of her naked body with pictorial virtuosity in describing the small crossed legs and the movements of the hands of the protagonists.
All the characteristics of the painting lead us to place it in the most typical Neapolitan late Baroque painting by Francesco De Mura.
The scene is very pleasant, as the work is part of the workshop production of the famous Neapolitan master to satisfy the great demand for devotional images from private clients.
Thanks also to his artistic longevity, De Mura created a very varied series of Maternity with the Virgin Protagonist, avoiding like many colleagues a continuous and repetitive reproduction of the same stereotyped iconography.
