MS G.55 fol. 112v

Anna, Virgin Mary and Christ Child — The Virgin Mary and Anna, who is wearing a headdress and wimple, are seated holding a nude Christ Child between them. He looks back over His shoulder toward the Virgin Mary and reaches His left hand toward Anna. Above them, the dove of the Holy Ghost hovers in a mandorla. Kneeling in the foreground is a female donor, who is wearing a headdress and has a rosary attached to her girdle. Her hands are joined. The scene is set in a windowed, wood-paneled room.
The margins are decorated with floreate ornament. The heraldic shield of Hospitallers (gules, a cross argent) is in the lower margin. Text, Suffrages.
