Saint Nicholas with the Three Boys in the Pickling Tub
South Netherlandish, circa 1500
Metropolitan Museum of Art, 16.32.193. Gift of J. Pierpont Morgan.
Unusually, the saint is shown with a mitre on his head. Dressed for the liturgy, he sits in his episcopal chair with crozier in hand and blesses the viewer. The boys and tub are a familiar attribute of this saint.
