Saints Bartholomew and Andrew
This painting is part of the group: The Santa Croce Altarpiece
Saint Bartholomew, at the back, holds a scroll in his left hand and blesses (?) with his right, revealing an ornate garment beneath his cloak. Saint Andrew, at the right, holds a book.

The panel formed the third section from the left, below the pinnacles, of the high altarpiece of S. Croce, Florence. It was above a depiction of Saint Paul in the main tier below 'David'.
