This picture of the ‘The Virgin and Child’ is the central panel from The Demidoff Altarpiece made for the high altar of San Domenico in Ascoli Piceno, east central Italy.
In this altarpiece, Crivelli has used three-dimensional elements: glass, beads, carved and gilded wood and even gilded rope. In the flickering candle-light of a church, the effect of these would have been more powerful than in the well-lit gallery.
Crivelli’s work is distinctive for the detail of his settings. The Virgin is seated on a marble step and surrounded by festoons of fruit and a tooled gilded background.

Kath. Pfarrkirche St. Moritz Augsburg Georg Petel (1601–1635) Hl. Sebastian from edgarhohl
I like this because instead of looking serenely at heaven like he does in many depictions, Sebastian is looking down like, “Oh dang, I am full of arrows.”
