Virgin and Child


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The upward glance and swayed pose of this Virgin is typically Gothic and is also seen in stone sculptures on the façades of cathedrals in Amiens and Paris. The Virgin once held the Christ Child in the curve of her left arm. The original paint is remarkably well preserved, although parts of the blue and red areas were repainted in the 19th century.
