VICENTINO, Andrea
(b. ca. 1542, Vicenza, d. ca. 1617, Venezia)

The Doge and the Patriarch Welcoming Henri III, King of France (detail)

1595-1600
Oil on canvas
Palazzo Ducale, Venice

The painting, although not artistically notable, is a significant historical document because it commemorates the ceremonial visit of the King of France and Poland to Venice in 1574.

The painting is one of the canvases covering the walls of the Sala della Quattro Porte in the Palazzo Ducale.
