While Saint Joseph sleeps in the right background, Saint John the Baptist is shown on the left addressing the Virgin.

In an unusual gesture, the Virgin shelters the donor with her right arm. The donor may be Pierfrancesco Borgherini, a wealthy merchant and a friend of both Sebastiano del Piombo and Michelangelo.

The painting shows the influence of Michelangelo in its sculptural forms and colouring, and is possibly based on a design by this artist.

20% Cancellation Fee on Made to Order products

If you decided to cancel your made-to-order print for any reason, it is unlikely that we could sell it to another customer at full selling price. We'll therefore charge a cancellation fee of 20% of the order price.
