About this artwork

The altarpiece has a special artistic value because of the powerful construction of the painting. The central painting is divided into two horizontal registers, but the movements of the characters bring a dramatic coherence in the scene. The combination of the central painting with two remarkable genre-like panels on the predella makes the whole a rare ensemble.
