Catalogue Note

With its complex interplay of three figures and beautiful linear falling drapes this rare Anna Selbdritt is a striking example of Spanish medieval wood sculpture. Compare the drapes with the late 13th-/ early 14th- century Virgin and Child from the main retable of the Church of Santa Maria in Portillo, near Valladolid (Ara Gil. op. cit., pl. LXII). For the figure of Christ, note the early 14th-century group also from the Valladolid environs in the church at Viloria (Ara Gil. op. cit., pl. LXIII).
