The Virgin and Child and three angels, Italian Renaissance

Perugino (1448-1523) Suite
Oil on canvas, conservatory lining 67cmx127cm
Based on the central composition of the polyptych of the Charterhouse of Pavia by Pietro di Cristoforo Vannucci, known as Perugino, in the National Gallery in London, painted around 1500.
Our painting is a version on canvas of the first part of the sixteenth century, Florentine work.
The polyptych was commissioned by Ludovico Sforza to Perugino after an unfinished first commission to Lippi.
In the Carthusian monastery, a magnificent example of the Visconti-Sforza family's patronage, this ensemble adorns the chapel of Saint Michael.
The virgin in red symbolizes the passion of Christ and the blue the church. The atmospheric perspective is present here as on the version of the National Gallery in London and the version in the Palatine Gallery in Florence. The style of Perugino is there and we are in the Florentine renaissance, certainly a commission to a Tuscan workshop.
The dimensions are very close to the version that was in the Charterhouse of Pavia.
A silver frame of the seventeenth century.
