    Madonna della Seggiola (Sedia)

    1514

    Oil on wood, diameter 71 cm

    Galleria Palatina (Palazzo Pitti), Florence

    Raphael painted the picture in Rome, probably during the period immediately after the completion of the Stanza di Eliodoro. It soon passed into the Medicean collections. It was already there by 1589 and has been in the Pitti since the 18th century. It was carried off to Paris by the Napoleonic troops in 1799 and brought back to Florence in 1815.

    A celebrated picture in which Raphael is under the influence of the antique and of the Venetian school, of Titian and of Sebastiano del Piombo. The form of a "tondo" is in itself a reminder of Florence and carries us back to the taste of the Quattrocento. Of the form of the tondo the artist preserves and emphasizes the curve with his genial adaptation of the figures to the outline of the painting. And yet the composition is in no way forced, but on the other hand the figures in following the curve become more closely entwined together. This grouping, this closing around the fulcrum of the tondo coincides with the centre of affection - the little Christ, the spiritual centre of the picture. The colour, in spite of its vividness, has a fusion and a warmth which Raphael attains with genial and personal mastery.

    There seems to be no evidence of who this was painted for.

    The Mona Lisa doesn't have hidden symbols in it (unless you think Dan Brown and the loony theorists are correct) and, apart from the usual Christian iconography, there is no symbolism in this.

    thank you for the question, and that i'm truthfully of shrewish descent while it is composed of this difficulty. i grew to become into going to purpose and write a poetic reaction yet i'm no longer in a position. only fake it particularly is in blankety sparkling verse. I skim the hoi polloi for the unusual identify yet I somewhat have been neglecting Dahha, and Jellz, i've got no longer glanced at Darbz in a at the same time as. I omit Jack D's poems each from time to time!!!! SIN wrote something cool before and it grew to become into resolved before I have been given there. If i might desire to grant the poets i admire maximum a million/2 the attention I spend on Buk and Ian. then possibly i might experience to blame for no longer being greater eclectic. I try to study each thing via you, SIN, Love baby, Mek, Ma, Semper, Jack D, and that i'm particular i'm forgetting somebody significant. At THAT activity I spend approximately 5 hours an afternoon in Yahoo 7 days a week and fail MISERABLY. So I could study a team of "love is a flower" or "kill em all" crap to be honest??? final I checked we weren't getting paid for doing this? So a minimum of you recognize your poem has generated a good reaction from me. Edit: Buk I choose it have been that easy. i'm a magnet to hostility and attitudes of superiority. i'm no longer able to help it yet save on with the decrease of your metallic. If i might desire to get rid of those features in ME then i'd possibly on no account darken your door back.
