More about this artwork
This is one of eight depictions from the life of the Virgin that decorated the inner sides of the wings of the high altar from the Kaisheim Monastery church, St. Mary Assumption. Scenes of the Passion were painted on the outer sides of the wings, which were separated from the whole as early as 1715. The altar was a team effort of the artist with the panel maker Adolf Daucher and the woodcarver Gregor Erhart. Erhart's Virgin of Mercy (now destroyed; formerly Deutsches Museum, Berlin) is generally thought to be the Madonna from the Kaisheimer altar.
