Madonna Della Seggiola is an Italian jacquard woven wall tapestry. The artwork comes from the Italian renaissance artist Raphael, dating to c. 1513-1514. The original painting is housed in the Palazzo Pitti collection in Florence. It depicts Mary embracing the child Christ, while the young John the Baptist devoutly watches.
Painted during his Roman period, this Madonna does not have the strict geometrical form and linear style of his earlier Florentine treatments of the same subject. Instead, the warmer colors seem to suggest the influence of Titian and Raphael's rival Sebastiano del Piombo.
