Portrait of a Friar Dressed as St. Thomas Aquinas

Girolamo Mazzola Bedoli

Girolamo Bedoli was so heavily influenced by his cousin-by-marriage Parmigianino that the attribution of several paintings is still open to debate. It is a portrait of a Dominican friar in the robes of St. Thomas Aquinas, one of the order’s foremost saints. The painter uses a minimal yet varied palette, differentiating for instance between the white of the friar’s habit, the white of the codex he is holding and the white of the scattered sheets of paper or the folded letter lying on the desk.
