Antonio Rossellino was the youngest and most notable member of a family of sculptors and architects prominent in Florence during the 1440s and 1450s. He trained in the family studio under his oldest brother, Bernardo, and developed a lively sculptural style noted primarily for his sensitively rendered marble figures of youths, as well as reliefs of the Madonna and Child. This sculpture of the standing Madonna and Child possibly represents a commission for one of Florence's many chapels, and was probably completed by the artist's workshop under his direction. Antonio died of the plague around 1479.
