Summary description

Oil painting on panel, Predella panel. A Religious Procession, Italian (Venetian) School, late 16thcentury. The procession is led by figures carrying a banner on which Saint Mark appears (holding pen and book, with an attendant lion); in the centre, under a baldachino, a crimson-covered ark is borne (before which even statues in the buildings bow down in adoration!); a bishop follows, his hand raised in blessing. The procession is passing buildings, the facades of which are decorated with marble statues set in niches between paired columns. An inscription below the saint’s banner reads: IB [INRI?] / MAR / CE. The procession is led by canons carrying this and a Marian banner aloft, followed by black-habited friars.
