Formerly catalogued as a work from late-fifteenth-century Louvain, this picture seems to be most closely related to the work of the Master of the Saint Catherine Legend. In particular, it closely resembles two parts of a triptych of The Last Supper by that artist in the Episcopal Seminary, Bruges. The design of the table and the dinner laid on it closely echoes those in the Last Supper and one of the wings, a Passover Meal; in addition, it is interesting to note that the pattern of the floor tiles in the latter image is identical to that in the present picture.
The anonymous Master of the Saint Catherine Legend was first named by Friedländer after a panel depicting scenes from the eponymous tale in the Van der Elst collection, Brussels. The artist's evident links with the work of Rogier van der Weyden led Friedländer and subsequent art historians to identify the Master as Rogier's son Pieter, who continued to run his father's studio. Some of the compositions and landscapes, however, are more reminiscent of those used by painters of the Bruges school.
