St. Veranus with two angels and six stories from the saint’s legend

Maestro di San Verano

This panel painting by a Tuscan master of the third quarter of the 13th century shows 6th century Bishop surrounded by six episodes from his life in a style still strongly marked by Byzantine tradition. The scenes to the left and the right of the saint represent his life, a subsequent miracle and the appearance of angels at the front of his body. It comes from the collection of Paolo Gerli, the Milanese industrialist responsible for the Castello Sforzesco’s acquisition of Bramantino’s tapestries.
