Both mother and child look benignly out of the picture at the viewer. The infant clings to his mother's neck and she supports him with both hands. A single angel holds up a dark curtain, which separates the mother and child from an expansive landscape that is visible in the top left corner of the composition. [Görres, cda 2016]
