FOPPA, Vincenzo
(b. 1427/30, Brescia, d. 1515/16, Brescia)

St Stephen the Martyr

Tempera on wood, 89 x 34 cm
The Hermitage, St. Petersburg

The panel constitutes one wing of a polyptych. Another wing representing St Michael Archangel is also in The Hermitage.

The inscription on the halo can be read as "Sanctus Stefanus Protomartirus". The visage of the saints shows similarities to those of other Foppa representations.
