Giorgio Vasari recorded that the painting was originally commissioned to Bindo Altoviti.
It portraits a very old Saint Anne who is seated and holds out to the Virgin her son. There is a Saint John seated, nude, and behind Saint Anne another female saint.
Bindo sent the Madonna dell'Impannata to his palace in Florence, where the picture remained until Duke Cosimo I de' Medici confiscated it for his own chapel, newly decorated by Raphael.
During the Napoleonic occupation, the painting was brought to Paris in 1799, and then returned in 1815 .
The Italian painter, Raphael, was a great star of the High Renaissance period and was made popular by his different depictions of the Madonna, or the Virgin Mary. The Madonna dell’Impannata, an oil painting on wood artwork, is one of the late works done by him during 1513 to 1514.
This artwork showed how the painter moved from creating images of saints and holy persons as one sided, flat and without expression. Hence, the painting surprised everyone when a warmer use of colors and magnificent use of light to create a solid and tangible effect to the real life event portrayed. He showed the image of the Virgin carrying the young Christ on her lap and with her family members such as Saint Elizabeth, Saint Catherine and the young John the Baptist; and the window covered with cloth from which the artwork got its title.
