Zanobi executed this painting in the workshop of Fra Angelico. He used a cartoon (drawing to scale), possibly one provided by Fra Angelico. However, his figures lack Angelico's delicate grace, and their facial features are closely spaced and linear. His colours fail to display the subtle range of the master's work.
