    Default Alexander McQueen's inspiration: Virgin and Child Surrounded by Angels,’ Jean Fouquet

    I just found this quote from MCQ

    “This is one of my favorite paintings in the world. What inspires me about this is the bold colour of red in the angels perceiving the darker side of heaven and the gray blue angels depicting the lighter side. I’ve always been inspired by 14th/15th-century art and this painting in particular.”“This is one of my favorite paintings in the world.

    I've never seen this picture but it is quite striking. Where is it? Who's the artist?
