St. Agnes from the MASTER of the St. Bartholomew Altar (active 1470-1510 in Cologne). The name of the master is not known. Probably he arrived from Utrecht and was active in Cologne between 1485-1510. He got his name after his masterpiece, the St Bartholomew tryptych made for the church St Columba in Cologne.
