Saint Barbara, Meester van Koudewater, c. 1470

notenhout met originele polychromie, h 92.0cm × w 30.0cm × d 21.0cm. More details

These three statues come from the monastery of Mariënwater in Koudewater (near ‘s Hertogenbosch). They are attributed to a sculptor who probably worked in the seclusion of the monastery. This would account for the rather old-fashioned, static and expressionless appearance of his work.
