Literature and Art
This article follows up an earlier one by Malcolm Howe in the 2001 Annual Report, called Portugal´s Perplexing Panels, concerning six painted panels in two triptychs by the painter Nuno Gonçalves. The author contributes additional insights into the identity of those portrayed in the panels. He considers that one of the panels has a religious theme that would have made it suitable for display in a monastery, while the other, showing men in armour, would have been more suitable for a cathedral.
