Oil on panel, 43 x 38 cm
Private collection

This panel formerly was attributed to an anonymous Lombard painter called the Master of the Tortona Nativity after a painting in the church of Santa Maria di Canale, Tortona. This master was identified as Bernardo Zenale. The Nativity scene with an extensive landscape in the background shows the influence of Leonardo da Vinci.
