The Arrival in England of Saint Ursula

1425 - 1450. Tempera on panel.
Not on display

These works formed the upper section of the Altar Piece of Saint Ursula in the church of San Pablo in Palencia. The style of these paintings, typical of the International Gothic, led them to originally be considered Valencian. The painter follows the Golden Legend by Jacobus de Voragine (thirteenth century). Each story, translated into bright colours, abundant amounts of gold, and in different settings, shows its protagonists as slender figures richly dressed in the fashion of the day.
