Portrait of Fra Teodoro of Urbino as Saint Dominic
Giovanni Bellini

This painting dates from the end of the artist's life. It may have been intended as a portrait of Fra Teodoro who, as a Dominican, would have identified himself with the founder of his religious Order. Alternatively, Fra Teodoro may have served as the model for the painter.

The date and the inscription are probably original.
