Tempera on panel, gold ground, 93 x 34 cm
Private collection

Four panels representing full-length saints - Sts Peter, Simon, Rainerius and a bishop saint - have formed part of a larger altarpiece complex flanking a central panel.

St Rainerius is the patron saint of Pisa and is shown here as a young pilgrim in his characteristic hair shirt.
