Virgin and Child, Lucas van Leyden, c. 1530

Virgin and Child, Lucas van Leyden, 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 her child close to the picture plane lends the scene intimacy, which is further heightened by her tender caress. Whether Lucas actually made this painting was doubted in the past, but a recent restoration has shed new light on the matter.
