Saints Francis and Mark

Medium: Tempera on wood

This panel formed part of an altarpiece which had as its central panel a 'Virgin and Child Enthroned' (now in the church of the Filippini, Padua, though not painted for that church). The saints are identified by the inscriptions beneath them and by their attributes. The Gothic arcading behind the figures and the cusped plinth upon which they stand relate to the architecture of the Virgin's throne. The triptych was perhaps originally in the church of S. Moisè, Venice. Another panel from the same altarpiece depicts 'Saint Peter and Saint Jerome' .

Both these works date from the period of Antonio Vivarini and Giovanni d'Alemagna's partnership.
