Panel 6
Inscription:
We named Lucrezia Crivelli,
And Titian’s lady with amber belly,
Queens acquainted in learned sin,
Jane of Jewry’s slender shin:

Narrative:
The sixth panel is flashed blue glass. Six figures are depicted here. Lucrezia Crivelli is illustrated in profile, facing away from the other figures. Her gown, headdress and hairstyle are of Italian Renaissance vintage. Beside Lucrezia is one of Titian’s nude subjects, her pale stomach and breasts exposed.  The nude figure stares directly at the dark-haired queen to her right, Jane of Jewry.
