Caption

This is a copy Correggio’s picture in the Galleria Nazionale di Capodimonte, Naples, Italy. The title derives from the Madonna’s dress – that of a gypsy girl (Zingarella). The infant in her lap derives from the tradition iconography of the Madonna of Humilty. The presence of the rabbit is explained by the misconception in antiquity that the rabbit could reproduce without sexual intercourse. It is therefore an allusion to the Madonna’s virginity and the Immaculate Conception.
