"By the same. (Oil, W. 56 x 72.) Altar-piece. This picture has the cipher of Andrea, and appears to have been one of his early productions, or was done in his studio, by his pupils, under his inspection. It has suffered considerably, and was originally a votive offering in gratitude for delivery from some epidemic or plague. Santa Anna sustains the madonna and child on a throne. SS. Anthony and Jerome kneel in front; SS. Sebastian and Roch stand at the side; the background contains a view of the little town in the Mugello for which it was done." [P. 21.]
