The Virgin and Child with St John the Baptist, by Antiveduto Grammatica (1571-1626).

Oil on canvas, 154cm by 111cm.

Antiveduta Grammatica was born in either Siena or Rome.

He worked mostly in Rome, where he became a member of the Accademia di San Luca, in which he eventually held high office.

However, he was to become involved in a scandal within the Accademia about the proposed sale of the Accademia’s altarpiece, which seems to have blighted his final years.
