Label Text:This panel was originally from a larger altarpiece. It has the original but unusual feature of having a black background. The current scholorship has suggested an attribution to Giovanni Martino Spanzotti of Defendente Ferrari, but the present work might better be placed in the orbit of a painter working in the north of Italy, like Mansueti.
Provenance: Richard D. Segal; gift 1998 to Duke University Museum of Art, now Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University.
Object number: 1998.22.13
