This triptych was executed for the church of Saint Gudule in Brussels. According to Carel van Mander (1604) it was subsequently sold "for a very high price to Spain". Philip II sent it to El Escorial in 1586. Coxcie spent time in Italy and his style was inspired by Roman Renaissance painting. The old woman reading in The Birth of the Virgin is based on the Persian Sibyl in Michelangelo’s Sistine C

Saint Cecile has been associated with music since the fifteenth century. Here she appears playing the clavichord, an instrument with which she is customarily portrayed in renaissance works. Three singing angels accompany the saint. In this work, Coxcie reflects his knowledge of the work of Raphael and his followers, which was the result of his trip to Rome between 1530 and 1539. This influence can

When Charles V retired to Yuste, he took with him a panel by Coxcie as a pair to a Mater dolorosa by Titian. This may be that work. The Emperor’s choice indicates the prestige that Coxcie enjoyed during his lifetime due to his Italianate style. Here his treatment of the subject is comparable to that of Sebastiano del Piombo.
