Italian Master

Here, the artist realistically imagined St. Peter`s contrition, expressed in front of the Madonna, for denying Jesus. The Holy Virgin sits on the left of the scene with the clothes of the typical colors attributed to her. She has her hands folded as she rests her elbow on a pillow and turns her head towards the Apostle, looking at him with compassion. Like Peter, she too consoles herself in a silent dialogue; in her case for the death of Christ. On the right, St. Peter, recognizable by his attribute set of keys, holds a sheet of paper with the cross of Christ drawn. In terms of color range and composition, this painting is not very different from a more famous seventeenth-century version of Guercino, nowadays exhibited at Louvre, in Paris.
