The Virgin of Tobed with the Donors Enrique II of Castile, his Wife, Juana Manuel, and two of their Children, Juan and Juana (?)

1359 - 1362. Tempera on panel

This is the central panel of the main altarpiece in the church of Santa María in Tobed (Zaragoza). During his exile in Aragon, Henry of Trastamara (illegitimate son of Alfonso XI of Castile) who later became Henry II, and his wife, Juana Manuel, commissioned three altarpieces from the workshop of the Serras. This panel of the Virgin and Child shows both Henry and his son, the future Juan I, as kings, although Henry did not accede to the throne until 1369 when his step-brother Pedro the Cruel was murdered, thus after the work was commissioned.
