In this painting by Geertgen tot Sint Jans, the Virgin cradles Christ, while a demon tries to attack her from below. Circling around her are angels, granting protection from the evil that lurks below. In this painting, the artist uses a high saturation of yellows to represent the light radiating from the Virgin. This work also has a very high contrast, not so much between good and evil, but between the main subject of the painting and the supporting subjects that circle her. The Virgin and Christ, surrounded by bright light and very little shading, contrasts highly from the angels around them that are heavily shaded. This allows the viewer to focus on the center of the art, then slowly flow outwards to the supporting details.
