Saint Hubert (about 656 - 727) was first Bishop of Liège. The painting shows an angel appearing with a stole for him during his consecration as bishop. Behind him is a deacon with the saint's mitre and crozier. On the altar is a gilded altarpiece showing God the Father flanked by Saints Peter and Paul. The dog in the foreground was probably included because Saint Hubert was regarded as a protector against rabies.

With the 'The Conversion of Saint Hubert' this painting by a Cologne artist was one of the inside shutters of an altarpiece from the Benedictine abbey at Werden, near Essen. The outside shutters, depicting various saints are also in the Collection.
