Titian painted his picture for the Scuola Grande della Carità in Venice, a lay brotherhood that had chosen the Virgin Mary as its patron. As was customary with works produced for the Venetian scuole, the painting exhibits a wide-ranging narrative rich in detail. Wolf made this copy, too, in front of the original and Schack noted: ‘That an artist should dare to copy in the original size a huge work that had previously been reproduced only on a small scale aroused astonishment in Venice, for it was one of the most difficult tasks imaginable.’
