Description:
The painting depicts St Anne, the Virgin and the baby Jesus sitting on a grassy bank in front of an expansive landscape. Despite the geometric contours of the group the figures are inclined affectionately towards each other. The Virgin bends down to her child, and St Anne engages the viewer with a worried look. [Exhib.
