From whom acquired.
"I find this panel charming because it illustrates the best aspects of late-Gothic decoration in its intricate web of movement and strong colours."
Celebrated as a painter, illuminator of manuscripts and designer of woodcuts, Liberale moved to Siena early in life, where he estabished himself as an artist of some standing. Upon his return to Verona in 1476, he gained recognition as one of the city's leading painters, working on both public and private commissions. When the painting was with Benappi (see Provenance), the attribution was proposed by Professor Alessandro Bagnoli, who plans to include the work in a forthcoming article.
