Abstract

<p>Virgin and Child with Four Angels (Collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York) is one of the eight existing replica and/or copies after Jan van Eyck’s later work, Madonna at the Fountain (Collection of the Koninkljik Museum voor Schone Kunsten, Antwerp), and is considered to have been executed in the beginning of sixteenth century by Gerard David. While its artictic style may be characterized as some “productive” (Erwin Panofsky) archaism of mature David, the painting evokes artist(s) other than him, because of iconographic affinity with an anonymous artist’s Virgin and Child in a Niche (Collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York), which has also been copied after the Jan van Eyck’s original. It could be argued that the Charterhouse at Bruges might have commissioned the painting, due to a representation of a Carthusian monk and a cityscape of Bruges. Then the Virgin and Child with Four Angels and its painter David would be reconsidered on a cultural context from the late fifteenth- through the early sixteenth-century Netherlandish archaism, reconsidering its attribution, iconography and circumstances of commission.</p>
