PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE COLLECTION
A fascinating element appears on the reverse of each panel, for both bear indications that sculptures once decorated their gilded surfaces. Even from the ghostly outlines that remain, one certainly seems to have been St. Francis receiving the stigmata, while the other could be Saint John the Baptist with his arm raised to hold a lamb.
Dendrochronological analysis of the fir panel undertaken by Dr. Peter Klein upholds an early dating for this pair of panels. His report, which is available upon request, suggests an earliest possible creation date of 1502 upwards.
