Hans Memling: 'A Young Man at Prayer'
This portrait of an unidentified young man at prayer is likely to have formed the left-hand side of a small devotional picture. The open book, probably a Book of Hours or other devotional book, suggests that after a period of prayer and meditation the young man has looked up to see a vision of the object of his devotions, perhaps the Virgin and Child, which may have been shown in the right-hand panel.
