Both this picture and 'Saint Margaret' are fragments of a larger work, probably showing the Virgin and Child seated in a garden with Saints Dorothy, Margaret, Catherine and Agnes. They come from a chapel in Lippstadt, Westphalia.
Saint Dorothy, was a virgin who is said to have suffered her martyrdom under the emperor Diocletian. She wears a wreath of roses, and holds a rose and a basket of roses, which were miraculously sent from Paradise when a certain Theophilus mocked her on her way to martyrdom.
