MASTER of the Virgo inter Virgines

Oil on panel, 78 x 59 cm
Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid
The panel is notable for its multicoloured and busy composition, accentuated by the use of bright and highly saturated colours characterstic of this artist. The scene is full of figures in counterbalanced poses and movements, which gives it an impression of action and also a certain confusing quality.
