Virgin and Child Surrounded by Angels (c. 1450) is the right wing of the Melun Diptych by Jean Fouquet showing a pale Virgin and Child surrounded by red and blue angels. It is currently housed at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp. Since at least the seventeenth century, the Virgin has been recognized as a portrait of Agnès Sorel.

The painting is an example of the Maria lactans category.
