Saint Anne with the Virgin and Child

1510 - 1520. Oil on panel.
Not on display

This painting represents the triple generation of Christ, a subject which was very popular at the time on account of the extensive devotion to Saint Anne, the Virgin’s mother. The artist shows her in a garden, sitting on a bench giving an apple to the Child, who is in Mary’s lap. Mary appears to be sitting on the ground recalling the imagery of the Madonna of Humility.
