square IL POLLAIOLO BRUCIATO.
 LA MADONNA COL BAMBINO DI PIERO
 DEL POLLAIOLO NEL MUSÉE DES BEAUX-ARTS DI STRASBURGO

Neville Rowley

 

 

ABSTRACT

This article presents a Virgin and Child by Piero del Pollaiolo preserved in the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Strasbourg, which so far was presumed to have been lost in a fire in 1947. Even if the painting was badly damaged and largely burnt on that occasion, its quality is still visible today, and will be even more noticeable after the forthcoming restoration.
