San Pietro liberato dal carcere

Author: Sebastiano Ricci
Century: XVIII°
DATE:  1717-24  POSITION: presbytery - bottom left wall (on map n°10) METHOD: 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.
