Title:Virgin and Child

Netherlandish, late 15th century - The motif of the Virgin and Child derives from Rogier van der Weyden's famous painting Saint Luke Drawing the Virgin (MFA, Boston). The seemingly archaic trompe l'oeil golden niche returns the image to its status as an icon. [from Met gallery notes.]
