The Madonna of the Rose (Madonna della rosa) is a 1518-1520 painting, now in the Museo del Prado in Madrid. Ironically, the rose in this painting and the entire lower portion, was added at a later date by an unknown artist. Its attribution as by Raphael is uncertain, and the involvement of Giulio Romano cannot be excluded. A second autograph version of this painting, without the added rose and lower strip, painted on wood panel, is owned by real estate magnate Luke Brugnara.
