LabelThe coat of arms in the upper part of this panel has been identified as that of Guillaume de Croy (1458–1521), an advisor to Emperor Charles V who ruled Spain and the Netherlands. The artist worked in and around Brussels, which was the administrative center of Charles V's empire in the Netherlands. The golden chain surrounding the coat of arms shows that de Croy was a knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece, an imperial order.
