Martyrdom of Saint Thomas

Author: Giambattista Pittoni
Century: XVIII°
DATE: 1722-23  POSITION: presbytery - top right wall (on map n°15) TECNICA: oil painting

The canvases depicting the Twelve Apostles, that adorn the  presbytery's side walls, were realised thanks to a request left in the noble Andrea Stazio's will. 

There were different artists involved for the completion of these paintings, therefore, the series turns out to be a compilation of Venetian paintings from the beginning eighteenth-century.

The works were placed in plaster frames embellished with flowers and small angels, extending onto the walls to create a seamless decorative effect.
