The Funeral of Saint Anthony Abbot

1426 - 1430. Tempera on poplar panel

This scene is from the predella of an altarpiece dedicated to Saint Anthony Abbot, the founder of the eremitic movement. Its technical and formal characteristics suggest a dating close to that of The Virgin with the Pomegranate. Like that work, it was acquired in Florence in 1817 by Carlos Miguel Fitz-James Stuart y Silva, 14th Duke of Alba de Tormes.
