Catalogue Note

The signed central panel by Mostaert, whilst painted in the Netherlands, was likely always destined for the export market. On its arrival in Spain, the wings featuring the donor, and most probably his patron saint, would have been made and assembled to flank Mostaert's central panel in the form of this small portable triptych.  

A version of the present central panel (without the shaped top) was sold as one of a pair: its pendant representing The Resurrection.1 It is noted in the sale catalogue that one of the pair was signed and dated 1586.

1 Sold, London, Christie's, 13 July 1979, lot 57.
