Six Apostles

Six Apostles
panel (93 × 101 cm) - c. 1410

This panel was most likely the right panel of a triptych. The left panel would have shown the other six apostles. The center panel may have depicted a scene with Jesus.

It was found in the 19th century as the back panel of a cupboard. The city of Laon, in the north of France, then bought it. It originates from Laon as well: it was made for the Laon cathedral and ordered by Pierre de Wisant, a canon. He is shown on the other side of the panel.
