The table is probably the second of the two works mentioned by Vasari that Raphael painted for Taddeo Taddei in Florence (the other being probably Madonna del Prato, Vasari saw among heirs Taddei Palace) . In a tondo frame, the Holy Family gathered at the center of the painting: Joseph left, on one knee, right arm holding a stick, his other hand tends to Jesus that appropriates the flowers he tends it. Jesus, center, held by the arms of his mother, sitting on one of his legs; it is also maintained by a scarf tied around his waist and passed around the neck of his mother. Marie placed in the right part of the table, sat on the edge of a pond. Behind a fence separating it from the rest of the vegetation of a hill. It also realizes that distant landscape on the far right with a lake and some trees, is also present in the space of characters: a palm tree whose trunk occupies visual space between Mary and Jesus. His palms are spread out in the top of the table. Mary, his usual, dressed in a red doublet and a blue coat. Nature is also present in the flowers of the bottom of the table; a dandelion with egret is visible on the far left edge of the table behind Joseph. The saints are all barefoot and they wear a discreet halo elliptical.
Beautiful state of preservation!
