Workshop of Dirk Bouts: 'The Virgin and Child'

The Christ Child holds an apple. Behind the Virgin hangs an ornate brocade cloth-of-gold of a type Bouts often uses (see also those in 'The Virgin and Child with Saint Peter and Saint Paul' and 'The Virgin and Child').

This is a devotional work probably intended for domestic use. Although the flesh areas are in poor condition, the quality of the rest suggests the work of Bouts himself.
