Female Members of a Confraternity

This painting shows the heads or busts of fourteen kneeling women, and part of a patron saint.

It was probably painted as part of a confraternity banner or standard once in the Charterhouse of Pavia, which belonged to the unknown confraternity. Another painting probably from the same banner depicts 'Male Members of a Confraternity'.
