St Luke between David and Jeremiah

c. 1378
Baptistery, Padua

Each spandrel has at its centre the figure of an evangelist sitting at a writing desk in his study, framed on either side by prophets. At the base of each spandrel, in a medallion with a gold ground, is the corresponding evangelist's symbol. The coat of arms of the Carrara appears in the outermost corners of the spandrels.

The picture shows the northwest vault spandrel with St Luke between the prophets David and Jeremiah.
