"Madonna of the Book", also known as the "Madonna del Libro", is a painting by the Italian Renaissance artist Sandro Botticelli showing Mary and the Child seated by a window in the corner of a room. She holds a Book of Hours, the Horae Beatae Mariae Virginis, prayer books for laymen common in the thirteenth to sixteenth centuries.


Symbolizing the Passion of Christ, the Christ Child is holding the three nails of the cross, and the crown of thorns. The cherries represent the blood of Christ or are an allusion to Paradise, plums indicate the tenderness between Mary and the Child, and the figs are characteristic of the Resurrection. Mary's blue robe, a color she is often depicted wearing, has the symbolic meanings of purity, heaven, and royalty.

Alessandro di Mariano di Vanni Filipepi, most commonly known as Sandro Botticelli, was one of the greatest Italian painters of the Florentine Renaissance. His The Birth of Venus and Primavera are often said to epitomize for modern viewers the spirit of the Renaissance.

 

During his lifetime he was one of the most acclaimed painters in Italy, being summoned to take part in the decoration of the Sistine Chapel in Rome and earning the patronage of the leading families of Florence, including the Medici.
