Three Holy Women at the Tomb, with angel seated on the tomb and two soldiers asleep; ointment pots; hanging lamp.
Rosette in the gable.

Gaborit-Chopin 2003: Paris, c. 1300.

Atelier of the Diptych of the Judging Christ (Atelier du diptyque Du Christ Juge)

Traces of two missing hinges on either side.

Flat and smooth.

This panel seems to be part of the same polyptych as one at the Victoria and Albert Museum (242-1867), one at the Musée du Louvre in Paris (OA 2761), and one in Brussels (Inv. 846). See related objects. Davies argues for them coming from two different polyptychs (see Williamson and Davies 2014).

Purchased in Avignon on 23 November 1850.
