After Francesco del Cossa (Carrine Palmieri and Rosa Falcone): 'Scenes from the Life of Saint Vincent Ferrer'

Explore the paintings

This painting is a copy of the predella panel of an altarpiece originally in the Griffoni chapel of the church of S. Petronio, Bologna. The 15th-century central panel by Francesco del Cossa depicts 'Saint Vincent Ferrer', who became a Dominican friar in 1367 and was famous as a preacher and missionary.

The side panels, now in the Brera, Milan, show Saint Peter and Saint John the Baptist. The design is unified through the architecture and the rocky landscape.

The original predella panel (Rome, Vatican Museums) is also attributed to Ercole de' Roberti.
