Saint Dominic
On loan from Richard Deutsch and Graciela Fairclough, © Private collection

This panel was once part of a larger structure with the image of the Virgin and Child in the centre. Dominic wears the habit of the religious order that he founded in 1216. He holds a white lily, symbolising the purity of his life, and a book, alluding to his great learning.
