Madonna and Child with the Infant Saint John the Baptist (painting (visual work); Giovanni Lanfranco (Italian, 1582 - 1647); about 1630 - 1632; J. Paul Getty Museum at the Getty Center (Los Angeles, Los A...; 84.PA.683)
Note: This painting's small scale and sensitive, poetic intimacy contrast with Giovanni Lanfranco's more usual grand, illusionistic decorations. The painting's frame, a type that was often used in the Barberini Palace in Rome, hints at the picture's previous location. Lanfranco may have painted it for a private chapel owned by the Barberini, Pope Urban VIII's family and leading patrons of Baroque art in Rome in the 1600s.
