Saint Catherine

Saint Catherine of Alexandria is shown between two angels. The one on the left holds a martyr's palm; the one on the right holds Catherine's traditional attribute of the wheel on which she was tortured. Other versions of this composition are known; both this work and the version in the Hermitage, St Petersburg, have been thought to be the original.
