St Peter sends St Mark to preach the Gospel in Aquileia

Author: Jacopo Negretti known as Palma il Giovane
Century: XVII°
DATE: 1625  POSITION: presbytery (on map n°14) MEASUREMENT: 350 x 235 cm  METHOD: oil painting

This painting and the painting that represents the Consigning the Keys to St Peter were dated by Ridolfi during Palma's last active period. This concept may be confirmed not only by the notably slowed down motion of the painting, but by the almost psicological suspension that characterises the best moments from this phase, which is obvious in a design from the Scholz collection, dated in 1625, connected to the Consigning.
