Attributed to Michael Pacher: 'The Virgin and Child Enthroned with Angels and Saints'

Saint Michael weighs human souls and tramples the devil. On the right is an unidentified bishop saint. On the columns either side of the Virgin's throne are the Angel Gabriel and the Virgin, making an Annunciation scene.

The gilded decoration behind the throne is carved from the painting's chalk ground. Pacher's Tyrolean workshop produced carved and painted works.
