Christ in Glory with Saints

1660 - 1661. Oil on canvas Not on display

A Triumphant Christ appears to a group of saints among whom are Saints Jerome, Francis and Mary Magdalene. It is not known what church this work was painted for, although it is clear that it was meant to be hung at a quite high. Preti was a prolific painter who worked in Rome, Naples and Malta, where he was knighted and where he probably painted this work.
