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.
