Altarpiece examples from the Walker Art Gallery's collection
At the Walker Art Gallery, examples of altarpieces can be seen in:
'Descent from the Cross'
'Descent from the cross', after Robert Campin
Painted around the 1460s, an example of a triptych.
'St Peter and St Paul', Studio of Bicci di Lorenzo
Both paintings are likely to come from a large panelled altarpiece or polyptych.
Inside the glass cabinet in room 1 there are many examples of small devotional diptychs carved from
'Virgin and Child in Glory'
'St Catherine of Alexandria'
These three panels formed part of an altarpiece for the church of Leonard near Palermo, Sicily.
