KPM Berlin Plaque Raphael Sistine Madonna Porcelain Virgin Mary Jesus Angels:
$7900.00

Here is a KPM plaque hand-painted with the iconic scene of one of the Renaissance artist Raphael’s most sublime masterpieces. The Virgin Mary holds the infant Jesus while Saint Barbara and the early Catholic Pope Sixtus kneel in adoration of the holy child. At the bottom edge are the two most famous cherubs in the world—based on actual children Raphael observed while he was painting and included. The oil painting itself is one of the great treasures of the world. Attributes such as luminous, serene, majestic and harmonious come to mind. Today (after a decade in Russia after WWII), it is back in the Dresden state collection, which it entered after it was purchased in 1754 by Augustus III of Poland for about 115,000 francs, at that time the highest price ever paid for a painting. It was originally commissioned in 1512 by Pope Julius II in honor of his late uncle, Pope Sixtus IV. The painting is one of the most storied and beloved objects of art in the world, and the Berlin artist who here translated it into porcelain has recreated its splendor. This is an extremely impressive porcelain plaque in a gilt frame that is eleven inches by thirteen and one-eighth inches. The plaque is eight and a half by ten and three-quarters and dates before WWI. The frame is relatively new and could be replaced with something finer and more suitable, but it is acceptable and in good condition. The plaque has no damage and is in excellent condition, a work of art in its own right. I could perhaps ship this direct overseas outside of the Global Shipping Program with full insurance.
