Name: Doni Tondo - The Holy Family with St. John the Baptist
Artist: Michelangelo Buonarroti
Location: Uffizi, Florence
The painting is representative of Michelangelo's charismatic style. The colours are bright, the light effects sophisticated and the three sacred figures seem to almost float out of the painting. In the background a grouping of nudes symbolize pagan mankind. The painting was restored in 1985.
