Description:
Recto: Christ stands in the foreground with his right hand raised in blessing, accompanied by his disciples and looks down at a sick man lying on the ground. A landscape with a ruin, an artificial lake and further figures is visible in the background.
Verso: Anna and the Virgin are shown as full-length figures in a landscape. The Virgin holds the infant Christ in her arms, who is in the act of turning a page in an open book given to him by an angel.

Provenance:
- the original location is unknown, as is the date when the central panel and wing panels were separated
- in 1746 the wings were donated to the church in Gersdorf by Johann Christian Müldener, the court secretary of Augusts III
- in 20.04.1945 the church was burnt down; the wing panels had been evacuated to Dresden, but were destroyed during an air-raid
