Blessed Mother

    This is a portrait of the Madonna, by seventeenth-century Italian painter, Sassoferrato.

    The Blessed Virgin Mary has white skin and shoulder-length, brownish-red hair. She wears a bright blue veil and a white dress.

    The Madonna inclines her head to her right side.

    The background of the portrait is brownish-red in color. A large area of the background is lightened, forming a halo around the Madonna’s head.
