Description: This painting depicts the standing Virgin with Child on a table. The Virgin is veiled and wears a red mantel over a blue undergarment. In her left hand she holds the hand of Christ who is turning away in order to reach out for the lily that she is holding in her right hand. The composition is characterised by the quiet grief of the Virgin who foresees the death of her Child. By turning towards the lily, Christ expresses his readiness to sacrifice himself.
There are several versions of this composition, one in Apsely House, London, considered to be the original, and another in the Wallace Collection, London.
