  • This is one of the finest works of Domenikus Steinhart who, after training in Italy, worked in Munich from 1682 until his death. The sumptuous frame of silver-gilt was probably made about twenty years after the central panel and is an early example of the Rococo style which flourished in southern Germany in the eighteenth century.
