The Virgin and Child with Saint John, circa 1490-1500
by David Ghirlandaio (14521525)
National Gallery, London


David Ghirlandaio was the brother and associate of the more famous Domenico Ghirlandaio (14491494), whom he long outlived. A few works have been recognised as his, but his independent identity as an artist has only recently been reconstructed.
