About the Work

Pieter Neefs the Younger was a painter of architecture who often created idealised representations of Antwerp Cathedral. Although the vast, seven-nave building has been recorded with considerable accuracy, the uniform Renaissance altar paintings are purely imaginary. Since Neefs was specialised in the portrayal of architecture, when it came to the figures in his picture, he worked together with his fellow artist Frans Francken III, another specialist, and the assistants in his studio.
