TWO APOSTLES FROM A GROUP OF FIGURES
Paintwork, in part highly rubbed. Lower arms missing. Losses and chips to the hem of the garments.
Provenance: Private collection, Suisse romande, from the Château de Courtaney à Avry, Fribourg.
This fragment is probably from a larger altar group with the Twelve Apostles in connection with the Death of Mary. The facial expression of the left figure suggests that he is blowing out a lamp or a candle, as is often the case when making reference to the Death of the Virgin Mary.
