Pinacoteca di Brera Informazioni

Madonna and Child with a Choir of Cherubs

Ambito di Perugino

Brera has two strengths in Renaissance painting – Lombardy and the Veneto. By contrast, the Florentine and Tuscan Renaissance is less well represented as when Brera was founded Napoleon’s forces could not confiscate works from Tuscany but had to limit themselves to the territory they controlled – Lombardy, Veneto, and Marche. Together with the other paintings in this room, which are largely fragments, this work gives a sense of the transition to the Renaissance.
