Artist's Description

Master’s Study (Part)

This painting is referenced from the top section of Caravaggio’s painting, “Madonna of the Pilgrims”. Caravaggio created a bit of a scandal with his painting for a number of reasons, the least of which was his refusal to idealize the figure of the virgin. It is believed the model for his virgin was his beloved Lena, a former prostitute and wife to the notary Pasqualone. Despite the controversies, Bolognese notary Cavalletti who commissioned this piece for the Church of Sant’Agnostino, accepted it. The original, painted in 1603, still hangs in the Church, and looks as vibrant today as it must have then.
