This panel, along with its pair, acc. no. 30.113.5, commemorate the marriage in 1518 of Barbara von Zimmern and Wilhelm von Weitingen, both of well-established Swabian families. These works represent the last expression of the Middle Rhenish style of the late 15th century, characterized by a strength and painterliness reminiscent of panel painting. The inscription on the banner above Barbara can be translated: "God have mercy"; that on the banner above Wilhelm reads: "Mother of God, have mercy on me, Wilhelm von Weitingen."
