St. Demetrius and Zuan Pietro Ghisi
Attributed to Jacopo Tintoretto1
Oil on canvas, 74 x 34.6 in. (188 x 88 cm.)
Church of St. Felix, Venice, Italy
As usual, the saint is pictured as a youthful soldier. The spear in his right hand, the instrument of his martyrdom, is his attribute, as is the red mantle.
The Ghisi family produced many notable Venetians, but Zuan Pietro seems to be known only for commissioning this painting.
