This painting, by an unknown artist of the Dutch School, depicts the Christian event commonly known as 'The Visitation' recorded in the Gospel of Luke in which Mary visits her cousin Elizabeth. It represents the two saints greeting each other outside a temple-like building. It appears to be an expanded copy of Willem van Herp's 'The Visitation' which may, in turn, be based on another unknown source.
