A Bishop Saint, perhaps Saint Augustine

Along with paintings of Saints Peter, Jerome and Paul, this panel formed part of the upper tier of a polyptych (altarpiece consisting of several panels) of about 1470.

Zoppo's artistic training was in Padua, where he was much influenced by Mantegna, but he worked mostly in Venice and Bologna.
