Based on the anonymous work of "Madonna with Child" chapel of Notre-Dame de Grâce, which is in the Musée des Augustins in Toulouse (France). The original is International Gothic style, probably from the late fifteenth century.
The Virgin's Gothic is a humanized Virgin, a mother playing with her son. In this case, while the child is entertained with a dove, symbol of the Holy Spirit, the Virgin is distracted and looks away.
