Madonna and Child

After Nino Pisano
(1315 – Pisa – 1368)

Alabaster, with traces of original polychrome and gilding

Italy, Sicily, c. 1450

Private collection, Turin, for more than 50 years

This exquisite alabaster statuette is a mid fifteenth copy of the famous and revered fourteenth century life size marble Madonna and Child in the Basilica of Maria Santissima Annunciata in Trapani, Sicily attributed to Nino Pisano, made for the Carmelite Order.

Devotion to the Trapani Madonna led to numerous later copies and reduced replicas, of which the present work is one. Nino (1315 – 1368) was trained by his father, Andrea Pisano, whom he succeeded as Capomaestro of the cathedral at Orvieto in 1349.
