LOMBARDIA - Milano - Cathedral Museum
FILE : Milano Cathedral Museum 1
TITLE : Group of Swiss Guards

LOCATION: Milano Cathedral, Museum

PROVENANCE: Milano Cathedral, window s XIII

CHRONOLOGY: post-1572-73

AUTHOR: Flemish glazier (attribution)

SUBJECT(S): Group of Swiss guards following a papal pilgrimage

CRITICAL NOTES: E. Brivio recognized the subject and ascribed this panel to the now scattered stained glass window, Pilgrims' Procession to a Shrine of the Virgin Santuary. He also proposed a partial reassembly by connecting the only eight panels still existent (see files Duomo 9-10-11-12-13-14-15). It appears that the stained glass in 1891 was still located in window sXIII.

PATRONAGE: See file Duomo 9
