Italian, North: 'Saint Hugh'

Explore the paintings

The inscription may be a later addition and it is not certain whether Saint Hugh of Grenoble or Saint Hugh of Lincoln is represented. Both the proposed saints were Carthusians (who wore white habits). However, the habit may have been underpainted only and left unfinished.

This has been attributed to Mansueti and to Lodovico da Parma who were both active in the 16th century, but neither identification is convincing.
