A polyptych consisting of five parts.
This altarpiece, now held in Moscow, is of great interest as an example of the early work of Vittore Crivelli, the younger brother of the more famous Carlo Crivelli. Works from this period reflect the influence of Antonio Vivarini and that of masters of the Murano school. Provenance: acquired in Italy (probably from the antiquarian dealer Ongagni on St. Mark's Square in Venice) between 1886 and 1898 by Khomyakov (Moscow), who donated it to the Rumyantsev Museum in 1901; in the Pushkin Museum since 1924.
