The Visitation

Before 1886. . On display elsewhere

Life-size plaster group of The Visitation, which had already been completed in 1886. It is a composition closely related to The Visitation of 1867 painted by Overbeck - a painting preserved today in Spoleto. Unlike most of the Visitations, in which Saint Elizabeth is old and represents herself in an attitude of respect before the Virgin, in these two cases it is presented as an almost equal to equal, affective and protective relationship.
