This painting is part of the group: Ceiling Elements from a Venetian Scuola
This and Pordenone's 'Saint Louis of Toulouse' were part of a ceiling in the Scuola di S. Francesco, the headquarters of a confraternity attached to the church of the Frari in Venice. At the corners were paintings of the Four Evangelists (Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest), while these and panels of two other Franciscan saints, Bernardino and Anthony (also in the Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest), were at the sides. In the centre was a depiction of Saint Francis receiving the stigmata (now missing).
