(b. ca. 1420, Firenze, d. 1497, Pistoia)
St Monica (on the pillar)1464-65
Apsidal chapel, Sant'Agostino, San Gimignano
St Monica, the mother of St Augustine, is in contrast to customary iconography holding a book instead of a rosary. This may be a reference to her son's eagerness to study, for he learnt about the Christian faith from his mother.
