Jean Fouquet, détail du diptyque de Melun, Musée royal des beaux arts, Anvers. - La délicate Vierge et l'Enfant, exécutée vers 1451, est peut-être l’œuvre dans laquelle le peintre français harmonise le mieux toutes les composantes de sa culture. La tradition veut que la Vierge -dont la pâleur d'albâtre est mise en relief par les anges bleus et roses analogues à ceux des miniatures françaises et flamandes- soit à l'image d'Agnès Sorel, favorite de Charles VII, morte en 1450.
