Workshop of Lorenzo Monaco: 'Saint Benedict in the Sacro Speco at Subiaco'

Explore the paintings

This painting is possibly part of a predella, or lower section of an altarpiece. The main part of the story depicted here is told in the 'Golden Legend' where the young Saint Benedict is receiving food from Saint Romanus.

The angel is probably a fragment from another scene once illustrated further to the right.
