This altarpiece, like the other five from the chapels, is from around 1584-1590.
Beginning from the first altar on the right, an iconographical path revisits the principal scenes of Christ’s life and winds throughout the Church’s six lateral chapels, which include works by Tintoretto, Paolo Veronese, and Francesco Bassano.
This work is signed by the artist under Baby Jesus’ crib on a stone: Franciscus a Ponte Bassa. s. Fac.
