Virgin and Child with the Infant St John the Baptist and Gabriel

The theme of this painting is noteworthy for Ferdinand Bol who is known primarily for his portraits and history painting featuring profane and mythological subject matter. While biblical scenes do occur regularly in his earlier oeuvre, they became more of an exception in his later work.
