Virgin and Child

c. 1330
Marble, height 48 cm
Victoria and Albert Museum, London

On this marble relief the Virgin is crowned and holds a pomegranate, the Child holds a chafinch. Like the relief in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, it was part of a very rare two-sided marble triptych, now separated and divided between various collections.
