Palma Vecchio (Jacopo d'Antonio Negretti)
Madonna and Child with Saints (Sacra Conversazione). 1520-s

The left part of the picture with the depiction of St. Jerome and St. Anthony of Padua has been distorted by over-painting. In the collection of the British Museum in London there is a drawing depicting a scene of the Sacra Conversazione (Holy Conversation) with a similar composition. Despite a number of differences in the detail, it is without doubt a preliminary sketch for the picture in the Pushkin Museum.
