St. Luke Drawing the Virgin Mary

Here we have an interesting painting, by the great Flemish artist Rogier Van der Weyden (1400-1464). St. Luke (apparently a self-portrait of Van der Weyden himself) is making a drawing for his painting of the Blessed Mother. The painting is supposed to be dated 1440.
