WAG 1189

Currently not on display


A woman (identifiable as the Virgin) wearing a white veil around her head and neck and bright red drapery over her knees is seated against a tree. On her left knee she balances a baby (the Christ Child) dressed in a transparent tunic, and holding an apple in his right hand. 2 adult winged angels float above the couple holding a crown over the Virgin's head. In the background landscape to the left is a turreted house under whose entrance arch two figures meet, probably representing the Virgin and St Elisabeth. In the background to the right is a gabled cottage with a garden in front of it. In the front room of the cottage one can see an adult angel (identifiable as the Archangel Gabriel) greeting a seated woman, (the Virgin Mary).
