Created for a private chapel in Northern Spain. This beautiful group of sculptures of the Virgin and Child with four female Saints is remarkably rare, not only in that it survives in almost complete form, but also because it is one of only very few such pieces with an assured provenance and a known patron. Its documented history is such that it can be confidently dated to the years immediately preceding 1461, the year the chapel in Oviedo in which it was placed was consecrated.
