UNKNOWN MASTER, Flemish

Tempera on wood, 33 x 21 cm
Museum Mayer van den Bergh, Antwerp
This small panel originally belonged to a polyptych which was probably conceived as a portable altarpiece or devotional painting, as it could be folded up to a size that would fit readily into a small box or leather pouch. Other panels from the polyptych representing St Christopher and the Nativity are also in the same museum.
