Panels from an Altarpiece

/

These two panels, one showing Saints John the Baptist and John the Evangelist and the other Saints Mark and Augustine, are fragments of an altarpiece. A lost or unidentified central panel is likely to have shown the Virgin Mary and Christ Child; if that is the case, the tilted floor on which the saints stand would have continued seamlessly across all the panels. But it’s also possible that a sculpture formed the centre of this ensemble.

Nothing is known about the original layout and context of these panels, but the depiction of Saint Augustine on the right-hand panel suggests that they were made for a foundation associated with the Augustinian Order.
