Description

The series of the Redemption of Man included ten subjects; only two full panels of the present subject exist, one in the Metropolitian Musuem of Art and one in the Hampton Court. Fragments and smaller hangings, representing this composition or parts of it are in the Burrell Collection, Glasgow and the Victoria and the Albert Museum, London. Cavallo (p.440, op.cit.) mentions the present tapestry as "a fragment of the four figures" that has survived, formerly in the collection of Ferdinand Schutz.
