Virgin and Child with Angels

Canvas, 107 x 81 cm

This painting is probably the earliest surviving work on canvas from France. It follows the gracefully hieratic mode of the International Style, seen especially in the cascades of calligraphic drapery and the elegantly elongated fingers of the Mother and Son.
