Height: Each 35; width: 17cm.

Private ownership, Netherlands.

The reliefs offered here (lots 1005 and 1006) were originally part of a large Spanish altar from the second half of the 16th century.

In addition to the scenes from the childhood of Christ - the Visitation, the Nativity and the Circumcision - and the three Evangelists, the altar included four scenes from the life of Mary (Annunciation, Assumption of Mary, Pentecost and Coronation of Mary) as well as five other scenes from the life of Jesus (Jesus in the Temple, Gethsemane, Scourging, Bespotted) and the fourth Evangelist (Luke).
