A recently restored 15th century panel painting
This exhibition centres on a recently restored panel painting which is remarkable not only for its exceptional quality but also for the complexity of its content. With its structure of concentric circles in which various groups of figures surround a central Coronation of the Virgin, the Basel panel must surely be a unique example of its kind among surviving Late Mediaeval paintings.
