Retable

Retable

Purchased from Messrs Pouzadoux in 1890 for £14 (350 francs)

Original:

Retable
Sculptor unknown
About 1259-67
Stone
Originally in the Church of St Germer-de-Fly, Oise, now in the Musée de Cluny, Paris, France

The retable (part of an altar holding decorative panels) shows the Crucifixion, with on either side, Mary and John, Ecclesia and Synagogue, Peter and Paul, and the Annunciation and Visitation; the remaining figures presumably depict incidents from the legend of St Geremar, but the interpretation is uncertain.
