Caravaggio - Michelangelo Merisi - Oil

The Madonna di Loreto (in Italian, Madonna dei Pellegrini or pilgrims) is a famous painting (1604-1606) by the Italian Baroque master Caravaggio, located in the Cavalletti Chapel of the church of Sant'Agostino, near the Piazza Navona in Rome. It depicts the apparition of the barefoot virgin and naked child to two peasants on a pilgrimage
or as some say it is the quickening of the iconic statue of the Virgin. In 1603 the heirs of one Ermete Cavalletti commissioned for the decoration of the family chapel with a painting on the theme of this icon. Giovanni Baglione, a competing painter of lesser talent, but who had successfully obtained Caravaggio's jailing during a libel trial, said that the unveiling of this painting "caused the common people to make a great cackle (schiamazzo) over it". The uproar was not surprising. The Virgin Mary, like her admiring pilgrims, is barefoot. The doorway or niche is not an exalted cumulus or bevy of putti, but a partly decrepit wall of flaking brick is visible. Only the merest halo sanctifies her and the baby. While beautiful, the Virgin Mary could be any woman, emerging from the night shadows. Like many of Caravaggio's Roman paintings.
