Formerly, this portable triptych was in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. It was sold for the Acquisitions Fund in 2013.
The scene is set within an architectural interior with receding square tiled floors whose pattern differs in each of the three sections. The composition is typical of medieval painting from the region, aligning the figures in a formal, almost rigid arrangement. Though the influence of Roger van der Weyden and Hugo van der Goes is at once apparent, the figures' faces are distinctly Sevillian in temperament.
The parallels between this triptych and the Entombment panel in Budapest, which is the keystone for attributions to Pedro Sanchez, are palpable.
