The Canigiani Holy Family or Canigiani Madonna is a painting by the Italian High Renaissance artist Raphael from 1508. It is part of the permanent collection of the Alte Pinakothek in Munich, Germany.[1]

It shows mainly Elisabeth with baby John the Baptist, Joseph and Mary with infant baby Jesus (l.t.r.). These figures of the New Testament maintain eye contact.

The oil painting was bought from the painter by the Canigiani family in Florence for their Home altar.
