As one of the most popular Sienese artists of the Renaissance, Sano di Pietro had a long and prolific career with an impressive number of paintings, now dispersed throughout the most important museums of the world.
The panel depicts an intimate moment of tenderness with the infant Christ hugging his mother and it was mostly created for a quite ambitious moment of private devotion.
