The Virgin Mary appears majestically on a marble throne, with an exquisite carpet covering the pedestal. St Anthony Abbot in a black habit and St Martin, the Bishop of Tours, stand at her feet. Named after his native town, the master painter Bassano executed this work for the church of San Martino in Rosai near Feltre. This explains the prominence of St Martin who is turning towards the viewer, thus integrating him in the divine dialogue through direct eye contact.
