Raphael was not wedded to the natural, however. He was equally at home with transporting Mary out of the earthly sphere into the realm of apparition. In his Sistine Madonna (now in the Dresden Gemäldegalerie), he forayed into new iconography. Parted curtains reveal the Madonna and Child floating in midair over a parapet. Billowing clouds seems to support her feet, while the light discloses the forms of cherubim amidst the mist that envelops her. St Barbara looks indulgently down towards two putti posing under Mary's feet, while Pope St Sixtus directs Mary's attention towards our petitions. The Blessed Virgin, however, gazes out towards the viewer, serene and reassuring, offering hope. Her easy grace is the fruit of the artist's tireless study and meditation on Mary as intercessor.
