The paintings of the Ferrarese Renaissance share a particularly sensitive observation of nature and the expressive features of the landscape, which play a role in the picture, as in the refined small panels by Mazzolino. See the painting in which doubting Thomas touches Christ's wounds, as a new vision opens before him expressed in the vibrant celestial landscape.
