Gaetano Susali (1724-79)
St. Cajetan

Church of St. Marcuola, Venice, Italy

St. Cajetan (Gaetano di Thiene) is often pictured with the Christ Child. This is not the only time he is shown kissing the child's feet. The high-collared cassock is almost universal among his portraits, but the zuccheto a skullcap worn by some Catholic clergy is not.
