Explore the paintings

Saint Peter carries the keys to heaven and hell. Saint Dorothy wears a garland of flowers, including roses, and carries the same flowers in her basket, an allusion to the miraculous gift of fruit and flowers a child messenger brought to an unbeliever after her execution.

Dating from about 1505-10, this is one of two shutters of an altarpiece.
