This is usually accepted as a late work by Liberale da Verona, made after his definitive return to his native city in 1492 thereabouts. A work made for private devotion, it probably dates from the first decades of the 16th century. The slightly open mouth of the angel on the far left suggests his awe at the sight of the Christ Child who is wrapped around in a the same transparent veil that is worn by the Virgin. Its condition is judged to be fair.
