Pennnacchi, Pier Maria (attrib.)
Late 15th / early 16th century
Ceiling, Santa Maria dei Miracoli
This is one of several dozen painted panels in the church's coffered ceiling. It labels Abraham as a prophet rather than a patriarch and has him point heavenward accordingly.
According to the church's guide book, "The attribution of the painting cycle to Pier Maria Pennacchi (c. 1464-1515) seems to have been a generic label applied long after the diverse figures were painted."
