Saint Anthony of Padua

Maso di Banco Italian

Not on view

Maso di Banco was Giotto’s greatest pupil, and this representation of Saint Anthony of Padua (1195–1231)—an early follower of Saint Francis—has the weight and gravity that are characteristic of his work. It is the right-hand panel of an altarpiece painted for a Franciscan church. The central panel of the Madonna and Child is in the Gemäldegalerie, Berlin.
