St. Peter Enthroned with St. John the Baptist and St. Paul

Cima da Conegliano (Giovanni Battista Cima)

This late work depicts St. Peter, the Catholic >Church’s first pope, enthroned with his crozier, the papal tiara on his head and a rich cope about his shoulders. We can also clearly make out his other attributes: the fisherman’s ring, named after the trade he practised before his calling, and the keys lying at his feet. The saturated, sophisticated palette and shifting chiaroscuro conveying unusually intense expressions make this painting a true masterpiece.
