Taddei Tondo: The Virgin and Child with St John the Baptist
Royal Academy, London, England
This unfinished relief is one of two tondi which Vasari (1550) states that Michelangelo blocked out, but did not complete, while working on the David (1501-4) in Florence. It was executed for Taddeo Taddei (1470-1528), a patron of both Michelangelo and Raphael, and was originally in his house.
