The Apparition of St Roch

c. 1588
Oil on canvas, 495 x 246 cm
Scuola Grande di San Rocco, Venice

This large altarpiece on the altar wall of the Sala Superiore was executed with the help of assistants. In particular the hand of Tintoretto's son, Domenico Robusti, can be recognized at the upper part of the painting where St Roch looms among the clouds over his worshippers.
