Virgin and Child


Description Provenance Credit
Description The standing Virgin originally held the Child on her right arm: her left hand is outlined against her garments. Her eyes are small and show carved pupils. The remains of the broken Christ Child were carved away in the 19th century. The metal crown is missing, and there is a small restoration of drapery at the feet. Although the figure is quite flat, the reverse is carved with folds of drapery.
Provenance [Spain]; Octave Homberg Collection, Paris; Octave Homberg Sale, Paris, May 11, 1908, lot 941; Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
