Introduction: One of the reasons Raphael's Madonna and Child paintings were so influential was that there were so many of them. They numbered in the dozens with many
more copies done by later artists. Beyond that though, Raphael's Madonnas are admired for the quiet elegance each has in common while nevertheless
allowing us to glimpse the intimate, even playful joy shared by both mother and child. Examples of this can be seen in his Alba Madonna and the Madonna
of the Chair. However this maternal love is probably most noticeable in his The Holy Family, better known as the Madonna di Loreto.
