The Lamentation over St Francis

Poplar, 29 x 70 cm
Staatliche Museen, Berlin

This panel was part of the predella of an altarpiece, probably painted for an altarpiece at Pontassieve. Other sections completing the predella depicting scenes from the life of St Francis are in Berlin (The Apparition at Arles), in the Vatican (Receiving the Stigmata), and in Altenburg (St Francis before the Sultan).
