Saint Dominic

Carlo Crivelli Italian

Not on view

These panels are from an altarpiece painted for a Dominican church in the Marchigian town of Ascoli Piceno. The central panel, a Madonna and Child signed and dated 1472, is also in The Met (Linsky Collection).

Saint George (fourth century) is shown in contemporary, fifteenth-century armor with the dragon he slew, while Saint Dominic is portrayed in a Dominican habit and holding a lily, a symbol of purity. For more information about these two paintings, including a reconstruction of the altarpiece, visit
