Pear Tree Gallery

St. Barbara
by Robert Campin
from the Merode Altarpiece
Campin's settle, in this picture, has a back rail on hinges, so that it can be swung across, allowing people to sit facing the fire. In the background is an ornate carved dressoir and a folding x frame stool. The top lights of the window are glazed with small clear panes, while the lower part has only shutters.
