Historical Context
 

The work here is one of a pair of panel paintings, the second of which depicts scenes from the life of the Virgin Mary, and is also housed at the Museu d'Art de Catalunya. The community of S. Maria de Vallbona was founded in 1320, and was extremely wealthy and powerful, enjoying the patronage of many of the noble families of Catalonia (who sent their daughters there), as well as the kings and queens of Aragon. Queen Violant of Hungary (second wife of Jaume the Conqueror) is buried there, as is her daughter Sança.
