The legend of St. Luke drawing the Virgin inspired many Flemish painters who were contemporaries of Hugo van der Goes. This work, from which the panel with the image of the Virgin is missing, is a pretext for the highly-detailed representation of a painting workshop typical in the second half of the fifteenth century.
