This saint is usually identified as Andrew, despite the fact that his cross is usually X-shaped. This work is part of the same altarpiece as 'Christ rising from the Tomb'; other parts are known to have survived. Other compartments show Saints Peter, Paul, Ambrose, Bernard and Anthony Abbot, together with a predella with Christ and the twelve Apostles.
