World masterpieces from Italy will be showcased at Georgian National Museum

The Virgin and Child or the Albertini Madonna, created by Titian in 1560-1565, is one of the most important masterpieces within the Venice Academy Gallery collections and represents the Virgin as a young noblewoman with baby Jesus lying on her lap. Titian created a number of artistic images of the Virgin during his long creative life − All of them demonstrate the painter’s deep interest in the theme of the Virgin and Child, perhaps through a longing to understand and reveal the interrelationship between the worldly and the divine.
