This week Andrew steps back a few centuries to attempt a rushed version of Dieric Bouts' Virgin and Child, most of the majesty and all of the significance of the original devotional panel is completely lost in the 21st century copy. The original painting is in a private collection, like so many paintings of it's kind, however you are lucky enough that Bouts painted many versions on the theme. so why not going and find another one somewhere., they really are majestic. Tune in next week for Andrew's next copied painting.
