The great polyptych, once accompanied by a rich wooden frame, originates from the ancient Annunziata Church in Minuta, Scala. It was long believed to be the work of a painter, Giacomo de Pansco in Praiano, who realized, according to a document dated 1471, an altarpiece with a similar subject. This is an obvious inaccuracy, since the author’s style is part of the ‘devotional’
late-Mannerist Neapolitan style of the late 16th century, characterized by the use of
bold contrasts and the bustling exuberance
of figures.
