Gothic figure, Saint with book - Champagne Second half of the 15th century

This beautiful saint in polychrome wood stands in a refined dress, shoulders capped with a cape gracefully knotted on his chest. With her left hand she presents to the faithful a book, while from the right, now extinct, she had to carry a palm of martyr or an attribute, allowing formerly to identify it easily. The elegant belt that emphasizes its size as well as some carefully carved decorative details (bells, knots, clasps) give to our work an ornamental richness and a degree of refinement which, associated with the graceful features of the saint and her hair falling cascade, is not without evoking the preciousness and singularity of the art of Champagne in the second half of the fifteenth century, between Gothic and Renaissance, at the crossroads between Flanders and Italy.
