The Blessed John Capistrano


Description Conservation Provenance Credit
Description This triptych (an altarpiece with three panels) of three Franciscan holy men was probably placed on the high altar of a Franciscan church. Depicted as if bathed in natural light, the architectural setting with the three saints opens up to a serene landscape. Inside the church, this illusionistic opening would have given the painting the character of a divine vision. Rose petals are scattered across the floor. For more information on these panels, please see Federico Zeri's 1976 catalogue no. 186, pp. 275-277.
