Martyrdom of Saint Lawrence, with Two Benedictine Nuns, Jacobello del Fiore, c. 1425

panel, h 38cm × w 70.5cm. More details

Jacobello, who had previously worked in various small Italian cities, was among the first to introduce the elegant and brightly coloured ‘International Gothic’ style to Venice. The two kneeling nuns at left, who are witnesses to this scene of martyrdom, would have commissioned the picture for their private devotion; they perhaps belonged to the Venetian convent of San Lorenzo.
