Polyptych of San Vincenzo Ferreri
by Giovanni BELLINI

The polyptych of St Vincent Ferrer, executed for the altar dedicated to the saint in the Venetian basilica of St John and St Paul, is Bellini's first public assignment. It comprises nine panels arranged in three parts: above the Pietŕ with the Virgin and the Angel of the Annunciation at the side; in the centre the titular saint with St Christopher and St Sebastian at the sides; in the predella five miracles of the saint. Formerly the painting was crowned by a lunette which is lost.
