Virgin and Child


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 305

This monumental stone sculpture is a rare late example of the Beautiful Style, which, though pervasive in central Europe about 1400, appeared only briefly among the evolving sculptural styles in the imperial free city of Nuremberg. This sculpture was mounted under a canopy on the exterior of a house in Nuremberg until World War II.
