Madonna and Child with Saints Joseph, Zacharias and Elisabeth and the Infant Saint John

Pompeo Batoni

This altarpiece by Batoni, who was chosen to paint it on the advice of Cardinal Angelo Maria Querini, the Hieronymite order’s patron, is a classic example of his monumental, academic style inspired by Classicism. Probably commissioned between 1738 and  1740, its delicate palette points to a close study of the work of Raphael, a typical feature of Batoni’style at this time.
