The Virgin with the Child, Saint John and two Angels

1791 - 1800. Taille douce: etching and engraving on continuous paper.
Not on display

This print reproduces the painting by Andrea del Sarto that was previously preserved in the Royal Palace in Madrid and is now located in the Museo del Prado (P00339). Giacomo Bossi engraved the copper plate (Calcografía Nacional, Madrid, R. 2726) – for which he charged 3,225 reales – based on a drawing by Agustín Esteve. The printed image is part of the series published by the Company for the engraving of the paintings of the Royal Palaces, even though it was not published during the Company’s active years and instead was issued at a later date. For more on this series, see the commentary on print G00004.

The Museo del Prado is home to two other paintings on the same subject by Andrea del Sarto. However, this print has been associated with P00339 because of the similar treatment of the background.
