Saint Dominic
This painting is part of the group: The Demidoff Altarpiece

This panel showing Saint Dominic is part of the large 'Demidoff Altarpiece' made for the high altar of San Domenico in Ascoli Piceno, east central Italy.

Born in 1170, Saint Dominic was the founder of the Dominican Order of Preachers. He wears the uniform of his order, a white habit and black cloak. The attribute that identifies him as Saint Dominic himself is the lily (a symbol of chastity), and the book (which refers to his role as educator).
