This painting was originally part of an altarpiece that included the companion painting of Saint Barbara (see 1955.13). Attributed to the Master of Frankfurt because of their similarity to his other known works, these paintings were probably located on the wings of an altarpiece with the images facing a central panel. The artist portrayed Saint Catherine in Renaissance dress instead of clothing appropriate for the fourth century. The two paintings may have been cut short, since most other figures by the Master of Frankfurt are full-length.
