Coronation of the Virgin.

Limewood, with original polychrome and traces of gilding.

Southern Germany, Swabia, circa 1500.

Provenance
Dr. Gustav Rau Collection, Southern France.

The Coronation of the Virgin is a subject which was incorporated in many Southern German altarpieces of the middle to late Gothic period. It represents the moment of the elevation of the earthly mother to her celestial and regal position, endowed by God and or her Son with divine status and immortality.

Although both scripture and Catholic doctrine are silent concerning Mary being crowned on her assumption to Heaven, this became a celebrated theme popularised by fervent early medieval accounts of her entrance as a ‘glorious queen’ and ‘celestial legions’ leading her to her throne.
