Simon Marmion: 'A Choir of Angels: From Left Hand Shutter'
This painting is part of the group: Fragments of Shutters from the St Bertin Altarpiece
This painting has a reverse
A fragment, probably of 1455-60, from the tops of the shutters of the high altarpiece in the abbey of Saint Bertin in Saint-Omer, northern France. The altarpiece itself, of precious metal, made in 1455-9, is now lost.

The inner shutters (the larger parts of which are now at Berlin) depict episodes from the life of Saint Bertin. 'The Soul of Saint Bertin carried up to God' is depicted on the corresponding fragment. Gothic architecture is painted on the outsides.
