Winged Altarpiece

The central panel depicts St. Mary with the child and St. Joseph; on the side panels are St. George and St. Catherine with a kneeling, unknown pair of donors. Joos van Cleve has retained the compositional scheme of the Early Netherlandish triptych, enriching the picture with a diversity of architectural forms and refined coloration in iridescent shades.
