The Virgin and Child are clothed with the sun, perhaps in reference to the Woman and Child of the Apocalypse as described in the New Testament (Revelation 12: 1). Saint Anthony is shown with his attributes of a bell and a hog.

This work may have been made for private devotion. It has been extensively restored. The 19th-century frame contains imitations of medals by Pisanello.
