Almost all of Bellini’s large-scale commissioned works have been destroyed or lost throughout the last 500 years, and most of what remains, besides his sketch books, are small, devotional paintings meant for personal use. As such, many of Bellini’s remaining 20 paintings are of the Madonna and child. Housed in art museums throughout the world, they incorporate Bellini’s ability to incorporate perspective, a new element in painting, with the rich colors of the Venetian painting style.
