Virgin and Child


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description This carving is one of the earliest standing Virgin and Child ivories to survive intact from the Gothic period. Despite the sharp, angular style, the artist represented the tender interaction between mother and child, an observation made from daily life not usually depicted in earlier Romanesque art.
