Virgin Among Virgins

1509

Why is it canonical?

The Renaissance reached the Low Countries at a time when commerce and city life was thriving, and many artists produced works to sell on the open market without commissions in advance. Nonetheless, commissions from religious orders continued, as was the case with this panel by Gerard David, which shows a clear inheritance from the artists of that region who preceded him.
