Madonna Of The Harpies By Andrea Del Sarto Painting
Famous artwork by Andrea del Sarto
"In one of the best-known works by this Renaissance painter, the Virgin and child stand on a pedestal, with two putti grasping the Virgin's knees. On the left St Francis (patron saint of the convent of San Francesco dei Macci, who commissioned the painting) looks at us over his shoulder, while St John the Evangelist glances up from his writing at the right. The harpies on the pedestal may represent the Virgin's triumph over evil, as described in the Revelations of St John."
"Andrea del Sarto was the leading Florentine painter of the early sixteenth century, he combined Leonardo's sfumato technique with a richer range of colours in works that deeply impressed his contemporaries, from Michelangelo to Pontormo. Giorgio Vasari, however, damned him with faint praise by writing that his technical perfection was blighted by his lack of spirit. Nevertheless, Andrea del Sarto was highly influential, and his practice of making preparatory drawings before a painting became standard for later artists.
