The Story of St Nicholas: The Death of the Saint1447-48
Tempera and gold on panel
Galleria Nazionale dell'Umbria, Perugia
The three paintings on the predella of the Perugia Triptych depict the story of St Nicholas.
The right part of the third predella painting shows the death of the Saint. The starkness of a lightly articulated wall forces attention on the dying saint.
