Patron Saints of Cologne (1442)

The Chapel of the Virgin (Marienkapelle), off the south choir aisle, contains "The Patron Saints of Cologne" painted in 1442 by Stefan Lochner. The painting is notable for its photographic realism (note the varieties of herbs in the foreground) and believable depth.
