Notes

Summary:
Figures at leftThis picture is thought to be commissioned by Isabella d'Este to Giambellino around 1485 or 1504, but dating is uncertain as well as the iconography. The subject is a sacred allegory, as pointed out by the Cross on the right and by figures: among them are probably the Virgin, seated on the left, and some Saints. Many interpretations of this scene have been proposed: a symbolic representing of the Garden of Paradise, an allegory of Mercy or Justice, a 'sacra conversazione'. The perfect armony of the composition, with tonal values and light effects, overcomes anyway the peculiar iconography of this famous Bellini's masterwork.
