Followers of Gerard David: 'Saint Paul and a Donatrix'
This painting is part of the group: Two Shutters from a Triptych

Explore the paintings

This panel and 'Saint Peter and a Donor' are shutters from the same triptych, the central panel of which is now lost. The left-hand panel shows a male donor presented by Saint Peter who holds the keys of heaven. The right-hand panel shows a female donor (donatrix) presented by Saint Paul who holds the sword by which he was martyred. The donors' costumes suggest a date of around 1515. It is likely that the donors were husband and wife.

On the reverse two saints are shown in niches. On the left shutter Saint Jerome is shown with a lion and a book; Saint Nicholas is shown on this, the right shutter, restoring three students to life.

The panels may be the work of two, or perhaps three, artists.
