Explore the paintings

The figure of Saint John the Baptist in this painting is derived from a picture ascribed to Giovanni Bellini in the Accademia, Venice. In the inscription, Previtali refers to himself as Bellini's disciple.

Saint Catherine of Alexandria is shown holding a martyr's palm; Christ places a ring over her finger, recalling her vision of a 'mystic marriage' to Christ.
