DOUVERMAN, Hendrick
(b. ca. 1490, d. ca. 1543, Kalkar)

Virgin and Child

c. 1510
Oak, height 120 cm
Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

Despite the care with which Douwerman carved his statues, he was often undiscriminating in his choice of wood. That applies to his Virgin and Child, which has some very obvious pegs and inserts.
