Lucas Cranach the Elder
Virgin and Child

c. 1515-1520 Em exibição em Sala 6

In the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, numerous pictures were made of the Virgin and her child Jesus. This Madonna is by the German artist Lucas Cranach. He painted her with a beautiful, round idealised face and long wavy hair. She is looking ahead rather submissively, while her child tries to pluck a grape – a remarkably playful gesture. Two cherubs are holding up a cloth by way of a baldachin.
