Head of the Virgin, stained glass panel, Netherlandish, c.1600

Clear glass with brown paint, yellow stain, blue and purple enamels

Height: 108mm
Width: 90mm

Museum number: SG120

Curatorial note

The panel is possibly after the engraving Mater dolorosa by Wierix. The print is inscribed H W f et e. The posture, hood, drapery and expression match the engraving but the halo has been omitted in the glass painting. This is a companion piece to SG118, Christ crowned with thorns.
