Joos van Cleve
The Crucifixion: Detail, the right panel

On the left is an early example of St. Anthony of Padua with the Christ Child – on his book, not in his arms as the child will be in subsequent centuries.

The other saint is Nicholas of Tolentino, in the black habit of the Eremitani Augustinians. The plate of birds refers to a miraculous resuscitation of a partridge recounted in his legend.
