Description:

These large-format paintings, which decorated the outside of the doors of an altarpiece, come from the church of San Salvador in Toledo and have been attributed to Pedro Berruguete on the strength of similarities with the paintings of the main altarpiece in Avila Cathedral, though the experts are not unanimous on this point. Berruguete exemplifies the transition in the Kingdom of Castile from a Flemish-based artistic culture and the new Renaissance currents.
