The Madonna of Loreto, also known as Madonna del Velo or Madonna of the Veil, is a painting finished around 1509-1510 by the Italian High Renaissance painter Raphael. It is housed in the Musée Condé of Chantilly, France.

The painting was given to the church Santa Maria del Popolo in Rome by Pope Julius II. The painting, containing significant overpaints, was attributed to Gianfrancesco Penni until 1979 when it was undoubtedly identified as the work of Raphael. It is one of the most copied works of Raphael, the number of known copies is close to 120. Its name is derived one of the - now lost - copies in the Basilica Santa Casa di Loreto in Rome. This copy was thought for a long time to be an original painting by Raphael. The painting depicts the Virgin playing with the Christ child with a delicate veil and Joseph is peering over her shoulder.
