Saint Anthony of Padua with the Infant Christ
Giuseppe Bazzani

Saint Anthony (1195 - 1231) was Portuguese by birth, but spent his later years in Padua. He is said to have had a vision of the Infant Christ when preaching on the Incarnation (the belief that Christ became man).

The painting seems to be a comparatively late work by Bazzani.
