    From 1457, Tura was court painter to the dukes of Ferrara. This roundel, dating to the early 1470s, is one of three scenes of the early life of Christ that probably formed part of the predella of Tura's masterpiece, the Roverella altarpiece, the central panel of which is in the National Gallery, London. It is characteristic of the artist in its nervous, calligraphic line.
