Nativity ~ Naples, ca. 1460

Ms. 40 ~ From the Falangola - Carafa Hours, the mid 15th century format of the Nativity is here replaced by the earlier model, with Mary lying in bed, and the Child in an elevated altar-like manger, symbolic of the later sacrifice. Painted in the style of Mayorana. Bought from Ferrini.
