Title : The Efficacious Madonna in Quattrocento Rome: Spirituality in the Service of Papal Power [depictions of Madonna and Child in Renaissance Rome are more stately and remote than those done contemporaneously in Florence; a partial explanation is the continuous Roman tradition of iconic painting tied to images ascribed to Saint Luke as painter; another factor is the formality of the papal court; contemporaneous Florentine paintings are more intimate because they are designed for families, even the most powerful households in the city; Florentine motifs can be found borrowed in Rome by the more adventurous artists].
