Tree of Jesse: Virgin and Child

Detail of Tree of Jesse, which illustrates the theme of Old Testament prophecy pointing to Christ. The vine frame directly above King David is occupied by the Virgin holding the infant Christ. She is a beautiful figure, drawn by a highly skilled hand. She stands in a graceful S-shape and is clothed in a blue mantle with draped folds.
