This paper was prepared for Art History 3440, Northern Renaissance Art of the Fifteenth Century. Each student in this class was assigned a work of art from the McNay Museum’s medieval and Renaissance collection, and we were given the task of compiling information about the work into a paper in the style of a catalogue raisonné, a comprehensive review of an artist’s career, divided into entries discussing a particular work. We had to compile a full history of the work, as well as its current condition, previous conservation efforts, and commentary about the work. The following, therefore, though not reading like a traditional essay, presents the fruit of extensive original research.
