Polittico Costabili

The name “Costabili Polyptych” (Ferrara, Pinacoteca Nazionale) derives from its commissioner, Antonio Costabili. It was executed by Garofalo for the main chapel in the church of Sant'Andrea in Ferrara, around 1513. Critics have debated on both the dating and the total or partial attribution to Garofalo and Dosso Dossi for long. Today is clear that Garofalo painted the central part of the work – as it is testified by the throne of the Virgin, really similar to the one that appears  in the “Virgin and Child with Saints Lazarus and Job”, whose four knobs are a clear reference to Raphael's “Madonna with the fish”.
