Virgin and Child

North Netherlandish

Not on view

Offering a bunch of grapes symbolizing the Eucharist, this Virgin and Christ child must have originally been set in the center of a tabernacle. More complete tabernacles including episodes of the life of Christ on the wings seem to have been a specialty of the vicinity of Utrecht.
