The Coronation of the Virgin
This painting is part of the group: The Liesborn Altarpiece

Both this work and 'Christ before Pilate' belong to a group of eight panels forming a series about Christ's Passion and after. The majority are in the Landesmuseum, Münster. They came from the Klosterkirche in Liesborn or Marienfeld and appear to have formed the shutters of the Liesborn altarpiece, parts of which are also in the Collection.
