Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 42
Born 1569; died 1609, aged 40. This is a surprising specimen of the master, and combines an excellence seldom attained in his other works. The attitude of Christ is simple, noble, and grand; his countenance and attitude indicate a reproof of kindness; that of Mary is love towards her sister. Each face is full of feeling; the composition is grand, and the whole beautifully conceived and expressed. [P. 29.]
