Богородица и Младенец {1685}
Virgin and Child
It is a work of Giovanni Bellini's maturity.
It was the model for a number of studio replicas.
Unusually, the cloth of honor is off-center, revealing a distant landscape that in its light and atmosphere looks forward to the works of Giorgione and Titian.

Virgin is aligned with the vertical axis of the picture, but the rust-coloured cloth of honour and the position of the tenderly held Child introduce a daring asymmetry.
The beautifully painted landscape, incorporating a distant view of the Alps, serves to balance the composition and underscores the still, poignant mood of the picture.
The quince held by the Child is a symbol of the Resurrection.
