Madonna and Child and Annunciation

Master of the Pesaro Crucifix

This anonymous artist is known chiefly for his Crucifixion in the Pesaro seminary. The figure of the Virgin in the centre of the composition is not enthroned but sits in a flowery meadow, echoing the theme of the Madonna of Humility. The monogram ‘TS’ repeated twice in gold on a red ground probably refers to the School of Silk Cloth Weavers in Venice which commissioned the picture, the school’s patronage suggested by the sophisticated damask mantle in the foreground.
