FEMALE SAINT, PROBABLY SAINT ELIZABETH

Catalogue Note

The restrained drapery and charming features of the present figure are reminiscent of works produced in and around Ulm towards the end of the 15th century. An identification of the Saint as Elizabeth of Thuringia can be proposed based on the attribute of a bread basket, a commonly depicted reference to her charitable work for the poor.
