Assumption of the Virgin

Description Provenance Credit
Description This scene, from the same altarpiece as the Annunciation (Walters 27.309), combines the Assumption of the Virgin into Heaven with her Coronation. Much of the original paint around the Virgin's nimbus has been preserved. The peculiar bat-like wings of the angels may derive from props used in medieval religious plays.
Provenance Chateau de Bruniquel, Tarn et Garonne, France; Mme d'Ouvrier de Villyby, Paris, by purchase; Ferdinand Schutz, Paris, by purchase; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1928, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
Credit Acquired by Henry Walters, 1928
