Catalogue Note

The present figure can be closely compared with a group of three apostle figures and a Christus Salvator in the Catherijne convent Museum, Utrecht, attributed to the Master van Elsloo, ca. 1510-1530. Note particularly the treatment of the ringlets and beard of St Matthew, and the heavy decorative folds of all of the figures, illustrated in Vlierden.
