The Incredulity of Saint Thomas with a Donor

Saint Thomas, who doubted that Jesus had risen from the dead, was convinced when Christ invited him to touch the wound in his side (John 20: 20-29). On the right the Franciscan Saint Anthony of Padua presents a donor, presumably the patron of the picture. In the left background, Saint Jerome is shown in the wilderness. The figures in the background right may be intended for other saints.
