Madonna della Sedia

This is an oil painting, from the estate of Princess Lilian of Belgium, which originally belonged to the mother of King Albert I, Princess Marie-Louise, Countess of Flanders. Apparently, it is a copy of Raphael's Madonna della Sedia, depicting Our Lady embracing the baby Jesus, as a young John the Baptist watches devoutly.
