Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is a rare and original work of high quality.

History of the Object
From left to right, we see episodes of Christ’s life and scenes following His Resurrection: the Virgin, St. Ann and St. Joaquin; St. John the Baptist with St. Isabel and St. Zachariah, three musicians celebrating the birth of Christ; the Flight to Egypt; Christ in Emmaus; the Resuscitated Christ with St. Peter; St. Matthew and St. Martin. From a stylistic perspective, these depictions reveal some affinities with Christian iconographic works made by Chinese and Japanese artists who were trained in the Western painting seminary established in Japan in the late 16th century. The style was transferred to China in the early 17th century.
