About this artwork

George Minne owes his reputation primarily to his early sculptures which he produced before 1900. Medieval art was an important source of inspiration for Minne. This small group of Holy women in mourning dress seems to derive from a Gothic past. The figures recall the pleurants small weeping figures that decorate latemedieval mausolea.
