This rare painting is one of a group of altarpieces attributed to a master who was first identified from the fragments of an altarpiece found in a church at Castelsardo in Sardinia.The lower part of the composition has been lost and slots for hinges in the panel show it was originally a triptych. The conservative style and technique used indicate the cultural isolation of Sardinia, an island halfway between the coasts of Italy and Spain.
