K. Lankheit, Die Modellsammlung der Porzellanmanufaktur Doccia, Munich 1982, p.138, fig. 210, published as a model ascribed to Giovanni Battista Foggini.
FURTHER INFORMATION:Cast in red wax with a plaster support made as a model for the Ginori porcelain factory at Doccia.
The wax bas-relief of the Madonna and Child was published in 1982 by Klaus Lankheit in Die Modellsammlung der Porzellanmanufaktur Doccia. Lankheit identified this work as a model executed for the porcelain factory at Doccia which was made at the time when the factory was under the direction of its founder, marquis Carlo Ginori. These models presumably may have been used as samples to show to prospective buyers and therefore were not necessarily always produced in porcelain.
