Portrait painting by Jan van Eyck, The Virgin of Chancellor Rolin, LeadArt oil painting just do reproduction of it in museum quality on linen:

The Madonna of Chancellor Rolin is an oil painting by the Early Netherlandish master Jan van Eyck, dating from around 1435. It is on display in the Musée du Louvre, Paris.
The work was commissioned by the energetic Nicolas Rolin, chancellor of the Duchy of Burgundy, whose votive portrait takes up the left side of the picture, for his parish church, Notre-Dame-du-Chastel in Autun, where it remained until the church burnt down in 1793. After a period in Autun Cathedral, it was moved to the Louvre in 1805.
The scene depicts the Virgin crowned by a hovering Angel while she presents the Infant Jesus to Rolin. It is set within a spacious Italian-style loggia with a rich decoration of columns and bas-reliefs. In the background is a landscape with a city on a river, probably intended to be Autun in Burgundy, Rolin's hometown. A wide range of well detailed palaces, churches, an island, a towered bridge, hills and fields is portrayed, subject to a uniform light. Perhaps some of the Chancellor's very many landholdings around Autun are included in the vista. A haze covers a mountain range in the far distance. As in many Flemish paintings, the steepness of the hills and mountains is shown as much greater than that found locally, for dramatic effect.
