Two Leaves of a Polyptych, Circle of Colyn de Coter (1480-1525).

Oil on panel, 123cm by 49.5cm.

Each wing of the polyptych depicts two scenes from the life of Christ.

On one side, The Last Supper and the Betrayal of Christ and on the other, Christ and the Three Maries and the Entry into Jerusalem.

Colyn de Coter was an early Netherlandish painter who was probably born in Brussels.

He worked in both Brussels and Antwerp, producing mainly altarpieces and is thought to have had a workshop of some influence employing a number of pupils.

A strong influence may have been Rogier van der Weyden (c.1300/1400-1464), one of the most influential Northern artists of the 15th Century.
