The gallery takes its name from the six large, stained-glass windows that come from the Carmelite church of Boppard on the Rhine near Koblenz that date from 1440–46.
Nearby is a large mid-fifteenth-century Aragonese alabaster altar predella, or base, along with an imposing copper-alloy eagle lectern. Large-scale sculptures include the central shrines of two altarpieces. Tapestry hangings, Spanish lusterware, aquamanilia, and fine examples of German late Gothic silversmiths' work are also featured.
