Tintoretto, The Trinity Adored by the Heavenly Choir

Circa 1590
Oil on canvas
Columbia Museum of Art, Columbia, South Carolina. Gift of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.

This painting adapts the usually sculptural "Throne of Mercy" iconographic type in which the enthroned Father holds up the crucified Christ for the viewer to contemplate. That type normally includes a dove to represent the Holy Spirit, but in this case the "spirit" of the Father emerges as his breath.

The museum has labeled this as a Tintoretto, but it is not included in the Wikidata "sum of all paintings" for Jacopo and Domenico Tintoretto. Nor did a search for "Tintoretto" and "Trinity" at the Web Gallery of Art produce any hits.
