Liebeszauber[1] (c. 1470, Magic of Love) is an Early Netherlandish painting depicting a nude woman casting a love spell over a young man who is about to enter her room.

The painting, formerly attributed to Jan van Eyck[2], is housed at the Leipzig, Museum der Künste. The woman has a tight pelvis, wide waist circumference and small breasts, typical for the gothic beauty ideal, labeled the alternative convention by Kenneth Clark.
