Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Żagań, Poland
It belongs to a series of rosary paintings from the former chapel of the Rosary Confraternity, of which four have survived: the Resurrection of Christ, the Ascension of Christ, the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the Coronation of the Virgin Mary. They are now housed in the museum hall. It shows the coronation of the Virgin Mary by the Holy Trinity: seated on a cloud: God the Father with a crown and a lily and the Son of God with a crown of white roses and a dove hovering above them, symbol of the Holy Spirit, with a golden crown.
