Oil on panel, 19 1/2 x 47 3/4 x 2 3/8"
Nicholas Tolentino was a 13th century Italian priest who was canonized in 1446 by Pope Eugene IV. Known for his eloquence, he was believed to have performed several miracles during his lifetime. Here, from left to right, we see him freeing a prisoner, supporting a man who was unjustly hanged until he could be let down, reviving a dead person, rescuing a ship from distress, and preaching.
