Saint Luke painting the Virgin and Child

This work and The Virgin standing in a Niche are the outer and inner faces of the right shutter of an altarpiece. No other elements of this altarpiece are known but the central panel probably showed The Virgin and Child enthroned, as in Saint Luke's picture. The lost left outer face probably showed a donor with a saint.
