About

North German school painted circa 1500. An interesting, early 16th century figural group showing members of the court of Herod Antipas gathered before Herodias and Salome as they are presented with the head of St. John the Baptist. Apparently original pigment to the faces of the figures with significant later overpainting to the majority of the draperies and background over some inlay of mother-of-pearl.
