The Virgin and Saint John from a Crucifixion Group


Description Provenance Credit
Description Carved wooden statues such as these came from church interiors. They were made in different regions, thus accounting for the variations in style and type of wood used. Most were originally covered by gesso (a mixture of glue and plaster of Paris) and then painted in vibrant colors, with some details gilded; only traces of these decorations still remain.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
