About the Work

The Master BM probably worked in the inner circle around Martin Schongauer in Colmar. In his 'Virgin and Child on a Grassy Bank', the motif, facial type, and hairstyle all bear an affinity to works by Schongauer (57872, 33731). The same is true of the emphasis on the child’s naturalness and the abundant garment folds that convey the gentility of the Queen of Heaven.
