About the artwork 👨‍🎨

The Virgin and Child with a Monkey is an engraving by Albrecht Dürer. It depicts the Virgin Mary and the Christ child in a garden, with a monkey chained to the fence. The monkey is a Barbary macaque, which Dürer may have seen in a zoological collection in Germany.

Catholic theology during the Renaissance taught that the Virgin Mary was born without original sin. Dürer used botanical and zoological symbols to represent this idea in his painting. The garden represents Mary's purity, and the monkey represents bodily pleasure. By showing the monkey chained to the fence, Dürer is showing that Mary's virtue is greater than Eve's sin.
