Saint Barbara

Ca. 1520. Oil on panel.
Not on display

The saint stands with a palm frond in her left hand and her right resting on a tower with the inscription "Santa Varbara". This work from the Palencian school was documented in the early 16th century and is strongly influenced by Juan de Flandes. Today, it is attributed to the Master of Becerril, whose figures and technique are very characteristic.
