Veronica's Veil

Italian, Milan

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 500

The image of Veronica's veil is enclosed within an architectural setting. With the archangel Gabriel on the left and the Virgin Annunciate on the right, it forms a triptych. On the reverse of the two wings are Saint John the Baptist and Saint John the Evangelist. The raised letters on the border may be translated, "One alone I love faithfully."
