Circle of Pieter Coecke van Aalst: 'Donatrix: Right Hand Shutter'
This painting is part of the group: The Crucifixion Triptych

Explore the paintings

This painting is the right hand shutter from the Crucifixion triptych. It shows the donatrix who commissioned the work as if she were witnessing the Crucifixion - the subject of the central panel. Her husband is painted opposite on the left hand panel.

Her unidentified coat of arms, partly rubbed out, is painted on the 'prie-dieu' (the prayer desk she is kneeling in front of). In the background is a scene of the Resurrection.
