BIRBI-42.10.jpg

This damaged panel formed the left wing of two, together making what is known as a diptych. At the bottom, the three kings adore the infant Christ; above, within a nativity scene, the shepherds are told of His birth. The opposite panel, which still survives, shows the Crucifixion. The two panels were linked by the figures in the pediments at the top. The angel Gabriel, here, originally faced the Virgin Mary, announcing that she was pregnant.

This work is typical of the rather old fashioned Riminese school, though probably not by the elusive figure of Baronzio.
