Virgin and Child - Terracotta Medallion, Italy (Bologna?), 18th century

This beautiful terracotta medallion presents the heavenly apparition of the Virgin. Arising in the sky, enthroned on the clouds, Mary carries on her right arm the child Jesus. The typology of the terracotta medallion, the juvenile and expressive character of the Virgin, as well as the particular attention paid to the representation of the movement (through the figuration of the gestures and the moving drape of Mary), brings our relief closer to the works realised in Bologna in the mid-eighteenth century, around artists like Angelo Gabriello Pio (1690-1770).
