Giovanni Antonio de Sakis got his nickname from the name of his native city in the province of Veneto. Wandering through Italy in search of work, enriching the master’s artistic style with various influences, began with Ferrara. In Venice, Pordenone took the lessons of Giorgione and Titian, in Rome – Raphael, which formed his “great style”, which marked this canvas, custom-made for the altar of the Renier chapel of the Madonna del Orto church.
Lorenzo Giustiniani was the first bishop to be ordained as the Venetian patriarch. He was canonized only in 1690. In this work, the blessed is depicted surrounded by the saints Louis of Toulouse, Francis, Bernardin and John the Baptist, trampling the ancient capital as a fragment of the old world and stretching out the sacrificial lamb at the moment of blessing the canons of the church.
