Artwork Narrative:

Artist: Juan de Flandes – c. 1496

According to legend, Jesus appeared to his mother following his resurrection. Trained in Bruges, Juan de Flandes immigrated to Spain to serve at the court of Queen Isabella of Castile. In this painting, he suppressed his own individual style and closely copied a work by Rogier van der Weyden that had been owned by Isabella’s father, King Juan II. The spiritual power and artistic status of Rogier’s original prompted Isabella to order an exact copy. The queen bequeathed her version to her burial site, the Capilla Real in Granada, where two further companion panels remain to this day.
