Saint Paul

Niccolò di Buonaccorso Italian

Not on view

The apostle Paul holds the sword of his martyrdom and his epistle to the Romans. This is one of the few large-scale panels by Niccolò di Buonaccorso, who seems to have specialized in small works for private devotion. No other panels from this altarpiece are known. It is a late work.

Saint Paul, Niccolò di Buonaccorso (Italian, active Siena by 1372–died 1388 Siena), Tempera on wood, gold ground
