Granacci: Madonna and Child Christmas Card

Metropolitan Museum of Art

SKU: CR1983

Our lovely card features a reproduction of Granacci's painting in The Met collection. The composition of this picture seems to have been inspired from a sculpture in low relief, most likely by either Donatello or Michelangelo (Granacci had been a fellow pupil with Michelangelo in the workshop of Ghirlandaio). However, Granacci has made the composition more pictorial by placing the figures in a light-filled room.
