Catalogue Note

This composition is known in multiple variants and formats, though they all ultimately derive from the Virgin and Child pairing in Rogier van der Weyden's Saint Luke Drawing the Virgin (Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, inv. 93.153). Half-length examples, focusing solely on the tender interaction between the Virgin and Child, were taken up by period followers of Rogier including The Master of the Legend of Saint Ursula and the Master of the Magdalene Legend.
