Visit by Véronique Notin, Monique le Blanc and others, 6 April 2005. Commentary: the BM example has the most complete architecture; the BM example is different in colouring to the other two, which are similar; the BM example has good colouring at the lower portion, and good detailing at the archway; the BM is the only one of the three with inscription on bridle; iconography not after Schongauer engravings; figures and facial expression on all three by the same hand; the BM example is the original size, has not been cut down; three examples almost identical in size.
