Background
This, and its companion, in their original (?) gilt gesso surrounds, were probably the end panels of a cassone.  The scenes are unidentified.  Fritz Heinemann (letter of 6 July 1976) regarded them as early works by Niccolò Giolfino, but he is much too late for these panels, which are still wholly Quattrocento.  Recently attributed to Domenico Morone.
