More about this artwork
Bernardo Daddi was one of the most successful Florentine masters in the first half of the fourteenth century. The saint, whose robes show he is a bishop, is holding a goldfinch in his left hand. Since the bird is a symbolic reference to the Passion of Christ it can be assumed that the central panel of what was probably a five-part altar showed the Virgin and Child, towards whom the bishop has turned.
