The simplicity of the clothes, the morphology of the face, the similarity of the draperies allow us to compare this Virgin of Calvary to the Virgin and Child enthroned in the collections of the Badisches Landesmuseum in Karlsruhe, attributed to the workshop of the Master of Heiligenblut, representative of the late Gothic period in the south of Tyrol and Trentino (inv.
