Virgin and Child

Description Provenance Credit
Description The Virgin, holding the Christ Child in her left arm, stands on a crescent moon. The folds of her voluminous drapery accentuate the gesture of her raised hand and the gentle contraposto of her body. This statuette appears to be a late provincial adaptation of a 16th-century prototype. The Virgin's crown and the cross from the orb which Christ carries in his right hand are missing. The Virgin's right hand is carved separately.
Provenance Léon Gruel, Paris; Henry Walters, Baltimore, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
