Madonna col Bambino e santi - Cappella dei Santi Francescani - Basilica dei Frari Venezia
"Madonna and Child with Saints - Chapel of the Franciscan Saints - Basilica dei Frari Venice"...
The altarpiece is depicting the Madonna and Child enthroned. To His right are St. Clare, St. Bonaventure, St. Francis and St. Mark; behind the head of the client: father Antonietto da Venezia; to the left: St. John the Baptist, St. Anthony, St. Louis d'Anjou (Bishop of Toulouse) and Saint Andrew. The artist is Bernardino Licinio and completed in the year 1524. The Basilica di Frari is one of my most favorite churches in all of Italy. Outwardly nondescript, walking through the doorway, one is instantly overwhelmed by its ancient beauty and grandeur. My imagination explodes with a fascinating impression of great history, aesthetic brilliance and the “Holy” who have embarked upon this monumental “Basilica masterpiece!” Although I managed to sneak a few images, photography was restricted on my first visit. However, on our Pilgrimage of 2019, a small entrance fee allowed for unlimited actuations. “Frari,” is a very large Gothic church of the early 15th-century now filled with elaborate paintings and tombs. The interior is light and spacious and claims are often made for the Frari being almost a museum of Venetian Renaissance art. The Assumption of the Virgin is a brilliant large altarpiece painting by the Italian Renaissance artist Titian. It is the largest altarpiece in the city and necessitated by the very large church. This masterpiece of Madonna and Child is a central theme of all the dramatic chapels around Frari to the delight of the faithful. Just like most former tourists of Italy, one yearns for the delectable anamnesis of Gelato. I agree with that memorable thought, but I also hunger and languish for Venice and all its hidden spirituality that most simply overlook such as the Basilica of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari.
