This exquisite picture was painted for Cardinal Benedetto Giustiniani (1554–1621), when papal legate to Bologna. It is a paradigm of Ludovico’s mature style—so different from his early experiments in a naturalistic style. The pose of the Madonna evokes Michelangelo’s sibyls in the Sistine Chapel, while the emphasis on elegance echoes the work of Parmigianino. The stalks of wheat held by the Christ Child are emblems of the Eucharist. The saints are: Bernard, Peter (with the keys to heaven), Andrew (with a cross), Paul (holding a sword), Catherine of Alexandria (with a broken wheel), and an unidentified virgin saint.
