Nativity scene, but under X-Ray and cleaning, the figure of God the Father and the Holy Ghost appeared.

Therefore, probably a Double Trinity which is very rare. Apart from unfinished and damaged Piazzetta, this is 1st 18th Century Venetian - indeed Italian - altar piece to enter the National Gallery collection.

Provenance

Earl of Ancaster.
