Painted by Grünewald with sculptures by de Haguenau between 1512 and 1516, the Isenheim Altarpiece is an incredible polyptych that had three states of opening or closing to show different sets of scenes. This panel of the resurrection was shown with scenes of the annunciation and a concert of angels on high holy days.
