The Taddei Madonna - This image of Our Lady, The baby Jesus and St. John is called the Taddei Madonna (or Taddei Tondo) by Michelangelo. There is a connection to this image for me because my maternal grandmother is a Taddei. Taddeo Taddei commisioned this sculpture; he was one of Michelangelo's first patrons. It hangs in the Royal Academy in London.
