Transfiguration

Pordenone (Giovanni Antonio de' Sacchis)

This panel shows an episode in the Gospel where the apostles, for the first time realise the divine nature of Jesus, who appears to them surrounded by brilliant light accompanied Moses and Elijah. Here we are now in modern painting, the painting after Giorgione. The work was painted the same year as the Pala Pucci by Pontormo, 1518, and not surprisingly Pordenone had made a trip in central Italy sometime earlier, so we can arguably see in this work the influence of Mannerism.
