Martyrdom of St. Florian by Albrecht Altdorfer &; amp ;; nbsp

The canvas is included in a series of seven paintings depicting the scenes of the life of St. Florian. According to legend, a Roman born legionary born in Austria was thrown into prison for helping persecuted Christians.

After severe torture, he was tied, as shown in the picture, to a mill mill and drowned in Enns. This in a sense avant-garde picture is one of the largest spatial compositions of Altdorfer.
