This small panel, which measures less than 30cm high, depicts the Virgin holding the Christ Child in her arms while breastfeeding him. The anonymous artist was inspired by works by Robert Campin such as The Virgin and Child in the Städelsches Kunstinstitut, Frankfurt, although in the present work the Christ Child is shown nude and is thus more Italianate in style. Mary looks tenderly at her son, wrapping him in her mantle, the folds of which fall down in the traditional Flemish manner. Both the Child and his Mother are shown without their haloes and are set in an architectural space that is again of Renaissance inspiration and which adds a marked sense of space to the composition. It is thought that this panel was executed for private devotional purposes due to its small size.
