Virgin and Child, Lucas van Leyden (attributed to), c. 1530

oil on panel, h 34.5cm × w 27.5cm Catalogue entry

Towards the end of his career Lucas painted a few pictures of the Virgin and Child, including this one. The placement of the mother and child close to the picture plane lends the scene intimacy, which is further heightened by her tender caress. To create a personal bond with the viewer, Mary and Jesus gaze at us with striking directness.
