Madonna and Child is an artwork belonging to Claudia Ciotti’s collection.
Madonna and Child. Claudia Ciotti here has created a wonderful work inspired by a similar one performed by Bernardino di Betto Betti, better known as Pinturicchio or Pintoricchio (Perugia, circa 1452 – Siena, 11 December 1513), was an Italian painter. The nickname of Pinturicchio (“little Pintor”, i.e. “painter”) derives from his small build and he did it himself using it to sign some works. Giorgio Vasari described his biography in the Lives of 1568 (Bernardino Pinturicchio) also quoting Nicolò Alunno da Foligno in the final part. He was a complete artist, capable of mastering the art of panel, fresco, and miniature painting, working for some of the most important personalities of his time. He was one of the great masters of the Umbrian school of the second half of the fifteenth century, with Pietro Perugino and the young Raphael. In this work created by Claudia Ciotti, no restyling is done, but it is the creation and mastery of an artist who knows how to retrace the wonders of art history, through absolutely different and we would say unique executive techniques. Here it is no longer the brushstroke on the canvas, but the one on refractory stone, which involves innumerable executive and design difficulties. The artist intends to give those who know how to appreciate this artistic genre a unique work both for quality and realization.
