This work is incomplete. It was originally housed in the courtyard outside the convent of St. Francis but it was transferred to its current location in 1936

We cannot be certain of the artist but it would seem that this unfinished work was created around 1527-28 during the black death when many works representing Saints Rocco and Sebastian were made. In the centre sits enthroned the Madonna. In her right hand she holds a book while in her left hand (missing) she would have held the Child, which is also, unfortunately, missing.
