First floor - Room VIII - The foreign artists

 

This small room contains a showcase with three small paintings and two 16th-century panels not pertaining to the Italian figurative itinerary. The first is a Flemish painting attributed to a master conventionally known as "del Pappagallo", due to the fact that in some of his paintings the Child is playing with a parrot. This master was active in the first half of the 16th century, a period to which the saint portrayed by Lucas Cranach in the adjacent panel also belongs.

St. Catherine of Alexandria
c. 1530

The small oval panel, once part of a larger composition, was painted around the 1530's by Lucas Cranach. It is the portrait of a valorous saint, St. Catherine of Alexandria, armed with a sword and regally dressed in a red velvet gold-embroidered gown. On her head she wears a crown which matches the jewel on her neck.
