Information about author
a) This is a cityscape of a stone urban development; to the left side of it there is a tower with a Gothic spire; in the center there is a four-storey house of elongated shape with a small tower that crowns the attic. b) This is an image of Madonna; she is wearing a cloak and a closed dress with a high collar that was fashionable in the Middle Ages; on her head there is a headdress and the royal crown. Her hands are outstretched; they are holding the cloak’s hem, which is covering the figures of people with their hands folded in a praying gesture. According to the traditions of the Middle Ages, the figures of people (nuns?) are three times smaller than the figure of Madonna. Faces and figures are painted schematically. Madonna is depicted against the background of the doorway (?).
