The Virgin and Child surrounded by the Holy Innocents or The Virgin and Child with Angels is a 1616 oil painting by Peter Paul Rubens, showing the Virgin and Child with the Holy Innocents. It was originally produced as oil on panel, before being transferred to canvas; in 1671 it was acquired from a Monsieur de la Feuille by Louis XIV and is now in the Louvre Museum.

On 8 January 1968 the painting was carved into with a knife by a mentally deranged man in the Louvre Museum.[1]
