Hans MEMLING , active 1465; died 1494

The Virgin and Child with an Angel, Saint George and a Donor


Short title: The Virgin and Child with an Angel
Date: about 1480
Medium: Oil on oak
Dimensions: 54.2 x 37.4 cm
Acquisition credit: Bought, 1862

The unidentified donor kneels on the right of the Virgin and Child. He is accompanied by Saint George, the legendary third-century Cappadocian knight who rescued a princess by slaying a dragon, here shown at his feet.

This is a small altarpiece, probably for private devotion. The design of the figures of the Virgin and Child appears often, with slight variations, in Memling's work (see for example 'The Donne Triptych').
