c. 1512-1513 (1512 - 1513)
'Despite the lack of documentation, the Sistine Madonna is among the most easily datable altarpieces: In 1511, the new church of San Sisto was almost finished; on 24 June 1512, Piacenza joined the Papal States; and Julius II died not long after, on 21 February 1513. It seems very likely that the commission was related to Piacenza's joining and that the painting was completed not long after Julius' death.' Capellen p. 108
