Virgin with the Child
Gilded and polychromed wood
99 x 36 x 30 cm.
Burgos, end of the 15th century
We are in front of the typical educating Virgin, whose best-known sculptural example in its seated variant is the famous Burgundian carving from Poligny, today at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, attributed to Claus de Werve and dated from 1415-1417.
The relations with the images of the Carthusian Monastery of Miraflores and the Monastery of Espino, both from Burgos, induce to link it with this school and perhaps with the circle of Gil de Siloé.
