The Trinity

Oil on canvas, 170 x 115 cm
Sant'Alessandro della Croce, Bergamo

This innovative depiction of the Trinity, in which God the Father is a penumbra behind the striding figure of Christ and the dove of the Holy Spirit, was of such abiding interest to later Bergamasque artists that a number of them made it the basis of their own altarpieces.
