  • Title: Giovanni del Biondo's "Standing Madonna and Child": An Image of Mercy in the Late Trecento [the image of Madonna and Child is related to Mary's intercessory role; a standing Madonna, however, usually is depicted at burial sites; all of these standing images evoke Mary's personification of mercy shown to sinners, seeking mercy for the deceased person].
