In the centre is the Virgin, surrounded by the rays of the sun and crowned as Queen of Heaven by two angels. On the left-hand shutter is Saint James the Great, and on the right, Saint Cecilia, identifiable from the inscriptions on the original frames.On the reverses of the shutters is a scene of the Annunciation to the Virgin, set in an interior, completed when the shutters of this small work were closed.The painting was presumably produced for domestic devotion by the workshop of the Cologne painter, the Master of the Saint Bartholomew Altarpiece.
