Walters Ms. W.699, Single leaf of the Virgin and Child
Single leaf of the Virgin and Child
This Mughal miniature, dating to the early eleventh century AH / seventeenth CE, depicts the Virgin and Child after a European example. Its composition and use of grisaille are analogous to an image of the Virgin and Child depicted by the Mughal artist Manohar (Institut Néerlandis, Paris), which has been compared to works by the sixteenth-century Flemish artist Hieronymus Wierix. The painted borders probably date to the late thirteenth century AH / nineteenth CE.
