    Friedländer 1967-1976, dl. XII, p. 90, nr. 6: 'The Virgin, possibly harking back to Rogier van der Weyden, already appears in a similar version in an engraving by the Master of the Banderoles (about 1480). The motive was also used by van Orley, and by the Master of the Legend of the Magdalene on more than one occasion'; Friedländer 1967-1976, dl. VIII, p. 104, nr. 94: '[...] Virgin and Child, after an older model, possibly by Rogier van der Weyden, which is preserved in an engraving by the Master of the Banderoles and used repeatedly by the Master of the Legend of the Magdalen (see Jahrbuch der Preussischen Kunstsammlungen, 1909, p. 10).'; Friedländer 1967-1976, dl. II, p. 86, nr. 120a: 'This composition was employed especially early in the 16th century by Bernard van Orley and the Master of the Legend of the Magdalene, cf. my essay in Jahrbuch der Preussischen Kunstsammlungen, Vol. 30, p. 10 ff., and also Winkler (p. 64), who documents German copies.'
