St Roch in the Hospital

Oil on canvas, 307 x 673 cm
San Rocco, Venice

In this painting on the wall of the church of San Rocco, depicting the story of the healer saint's visit to the lazar house, the preoccupations of assistance combine with hospital propaganda at the scuola Grande di San Rocco. It is a breathtaking interpretation of an astonishing court of miracles.
