Gianfranco da Tolmezzo was an artist of the Bellini school active in the region of Friuli, on the mainland to the north of Venice. This painting was very likely painted around 1510, a particularly virulent plague year in northern Italy. All of the figures depicted-the Virgin and Child, St. Sebastian, and St. Roch-were evoked as protectors against the plague at this time.
