This finely painted and intricately gilded devotional dipytch originates from a Lombard workshop where fine painted enamelling was perfected in the second half of the fifteenth century, in particular in Milan. Compare with the tabernacle with the Annunciation and the Crucifixion and more particularly with the dipytch painted with St. George and the Dragon and the Crucifixion illustrated by Venturelli and both in the Museo Poldi Pezzoli. Note also the diptych enamelled on silver in the Metropolitan Museum New York and illustrated by Syson and Thornton.
Venturelli, pp.46-47, p.122; Syson & Thornton, fig.189
