The Virgin and Child with Saints


Date: about 1495
Medium: Oil on oak
Dimensions: 43.5 x 23.3 cm
Acquisition credit: Bought, 1935

The Virgin and Child are seated at the entrance to a walled garden, frequently a symbol of the Virgin's purity. On the right, Saint Catherine of Alexandria and, further off, the seated figure of Saint Agatha with another female saint. Through a distant archway Saint Joseph enters the garden.

The painting has been cut down at the top and on the left, and may once have formed part of a small altarpiece.

The artist was an Italian who worked in Spain, for much of the time in Valencia, and was considerably influenced by the Spanish taste for Netherlandish painting.
