Catalogue Note

A comparable painting by Biagio d'Antonio is illustrated in Roberta Bartoli's publication on the artist.1 The published painting features the same decorative floral detail, and geometric structure as the present panel, and other half-length saints and a figure of Christ (this time before the cross). It was known to have been a predella to a larger altarpiece in the Church of Santo Spirito in Florence. The present panel is likely to have served a similar purpose. 1. R. Bartoli, Biagio d'Antonio, Milan 1999, pp. 130-31, reproduced fig. 232.
