Interpretation / History / Discussion:
[Royt 2001, 358] noted differences between the painting style of the central altar panel which he attributed to a painter from Cranach’s workshop and the paintings on the predella, wings and top panels, which he considers to be made by an artist from Bohemia.
[Exhib. Cat. Prague 2005, no. 18]
In addition to the different wood species employed for the support the character of the underdrawing and the quality of the painting style also document that several painters participated in the production of the painting.
