Photograph of a painting of a head and shoulder length portrait of a woman, possibly the Virgin Mary. She is depicted weeping and holding her hands together in prayer. The painting is photographed in its frame. A piece of paper with the number '501' written on it appears in the lower left corner.

The painting is attributed to Quentin Matsys, or Massys (1466-1530).
