Art history ruminations from a waterfowl. Honk honk.

I adore this work for how insanely modern it looks. This is the right wing of the Melun Diptych, commissioned by the king’s secretary Étienne Chevalier. The Virgin is believed to be modeled after Agnès Sorel, a beloved mistress of King Charles VII who passed away two years before this was painted at the age of 28.
