Title: Conestabile Madonna
Description:
Raphael Sanzio (Italian: Raffaello) (1483 - 1520)
Conestabile Madonna
Tempera on canvas transferred wood, 1502-1504
17.5 cm × 18 cm (6.9 in × 7.1 in)
Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg, Russia

The Conestabile Madonna is a small (and probably unfinished) painting by the Italian Renaissance artist Raphael. It was likely the last work painted by Raphael in Umbria before moving to Florence.

Its name comes the Conestabile family of Perugia, whom it was acquired by Alexander II of Russia in 1871. The Tsar presented it to his consort, Maria Alexandrovna. Since then, the painting has been on exhibit in the Hermitage Museum of St. Petersburg.

The painting portrays the Madonna holding the Child while reading a book. In 1881, when the picture was moved to canvas, it was discovered that in the original version the Madonna contemplated a pomegranate (symbol of the Passion) instead of the book.
