Lot Details & Additional Photographs

From the Collection of the late Sue Tucker Briggs, Raleigh, North Carolina

This panel would likely have been part of a triptych or diptych commissioned for private reflection and prayer. A similar panel, featuring these three saints and part of a larger triptych, is in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Some possible later restoration - the young Christ's face appearing to be overpainted.
