Label Copy

One of the greatest artists of 15th-century Venice, Carlo Crivelli developed a sumptuous, expressive—and at times wildly eccentric—style all his own. This painting is a quintessential example of his work, with its starkly lit, haughty Madonna and its attention to decorative details. The tooled gold background recalls the iconic images of earlier centuries, but it is here juxtaposed with impressively naturalistic details: the transparent veil on the Virgin’s forehead, the sealed letter affixed to the wooden foreground ledge, or the apples hanging from the rod that holds the cloth of honor. The apples and drapery, moreover, cast a shadow onto the gold background, thus making the gold a part of the picture’s perspective scheme, a conceit used by few other artists but one typical of Crivelli’s highly refined style.
