Author: Jacopo Robusti known as Tintoretto
Century: XVI°
DATE: 1579-80  POSITION: sacristy (on map n°33) MEASUREMENT: 334 x 293 cm  METHOD: oil painting

This work, along with the Last Supper and The Washing of the Feet originally belonged to the now demolished Santa Margherita Church.                                                                                  

Although the preparatory drawing is known to be done by Tintoretto, limited to Apostle John's figure, the pictorial work was chiefly done by his workshop and his son Domenico ( 1560-1635 ) .
