Description
The Virgin and Child wear magnificent apparel sparkling with gems set against a background of gold. The crowned Virgin tilts her head in the direction of her Son who looks directly at the viewer, his head radiating with rays of light. The 'grown-up' appearance of the Christ child is typical of Orthodox and early European portrayals of Jesus. The feminine beauty and tenderness of the Virgin, with her contemplative dark eyes and pursed red lips, is particularly delightful. By using various media the artist has vividly expressed the contrast between humbleness of the flesh and glory of the spirit in a manner that is quite profound. - (PF.5180)
