On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 304

This panel, one of a series depicting Hebrew prophets, decorated the upper level (clerestory) of the monastic church in Braine near the cathedral town of Soissons. The large figure style was appropriate for the height. The strong saturated colors and linear modeling that enliven the presentation characterize painting from this region. Records of the abbey name Agnes of Braine (d. 1204), sister-in-law of King Louis VII, as its founder.
