Catalogue Note

This fine figure of Saint Mark relates to the series of Saints in San Marco, Venice, by Sebastian Nicolini (Kryza-Gersch, op. cit., figs. 202-205). Its facial type, in particular, may also be compared to the figures in the relief with The Presentation of the Rose of Virtue to the Dogaressa in San Giuseppe, Venice, by Cesare Groppo, who collaborated with the Roccatagliata workshop (Kryza-Gersch, ibid., fig. 201).
