UNKNOWN MASTER, Bohemian
Virgin and Child Enthronedc. 1350
Panel, 186 x 95 cm
Staatliche Museen, Berlin
This panel shows its subjects towering above the Lilliputian kneeling Ernst von Pardubitz, archbishop of Glatz. The panel comes from the Augustinian monastery he founded there in 1350. Proudly yet modestly the donor lays all the attributes of his ecclesiastical rank - the elegant episcopal gloves, miter, and crosier - on the throne's step.
