Follower of the Master of the Saint Ursula Legend (Bruges): 'The Virgin and Child with Two Angels'

Explore the paintings

The Virgin is seated before a cloth of honour. The angels look on from behind a curtain. The Virgin holds a spray of red carnations, a symbol of the death of Christ; the infant Christ takes one from her. His nakedness emphasises his humanity.

In the past the painting has been attributed to Bouts.
