Angels advance upon the Virgin and Child from either side. In the foreground of the painting, before the Virgin's feet, a miniature stag drinks at a small pool. This painting was part of a collection of 117 works belonging to the industrialist and engineer F.D. Lycett Green and bequeathed to York through the Art Fund, in 1955, in recognition of the remarkable efforts made after the Second World War by its curator to transform it into a gallery of international importance.
Lord Boston; F.D Lycett Green.
