St Anne with the Virgin and Child






St Anne with the Virgin and Child, wood, carved in the round. The Virgin, holding an orange in her right hand, is seated on the right knee of St Anne, who is seated on a throne. The Child, in a long tunic, stands on the left knee of the Virgin and the left knee of St Anne, blessing with his right hand. The Virgin wears a crown over her veil. St Anne, in a wimple and veil, supports the Virgin with both hands. The faces and robes are heavily polychromed with traces of the original pattern and gilding. The back is hollowed out below the head of St Anne.
