Mezzotint
Plate: 14 1/2 x 12 1/4 in.
Purchased through the Class of 1935 Memorial Fund; 2008.56.3

This print is based on a painting, now in the National Portrait Gallery in London, that became one of Annibale Carracci’s most celebrated and copied works. The painting was commissioned in about 1600 by Cardinal Alessandro Peretti Montalto (1571-1623), a major patron of the arts, and is sometimes referred to as The Montalto Madonna.

The print shows Mary seated holding the baby Jesus. Both are gazing to the right. Joseph leans in closely to look at them, pausing from his reading as he holds reading glasses and marks his place in his book. The infant St. John the Baptist, clutching at Mary’s clothing, holds his customary long thin cross.

Vaillant was one of the earliest mezzotint artists: he learned the technique from Prince Rupert of the Rhine (1619-1682), who in turn learned from the inventor of the medium, Ludwig von Siegen (1609-1680). This early mezzotint is demonstrative of the smooth tones for which the medium is known. Vaillant uses these tones most effectively in rendering the folds and draping of cloth in the painting, particularly in Mary’s clothing. These subtle variations between light and shadow in the clothing are the opposite of the sharp contrast seen in Sadeler’s The Beautiful Slave.
