Four paintings for the Scuola Grande di San Marco (1548, 1562-66)
by TINTORETTO

The walls of the Chapter Hall of the Scuola Grande di San Marco were once adorned with pictures by Tintoretto and later additions by his son Domenico. During the Napoleonic period Tintoretto's paintings were dispersed. The Scuola was converted into a hospital, and the former Chapter Hall now contains a library of medical history.

Tintoretto's Miracle of St Mark Freeing the Slave, which was installed on the southern end wall of the Chapter Hall in April 1548, is now in the Pinacoteca di Brera, Milan. The later three-part cycle representing miracles worked posthumously by St Mark, commissioned from Tintoretto in 1562 is now in the Gallerie dell'Accademi in Venice.
