This long panel is a twentieth-century copy of the predella of an altarpiece by Francesco del Cossa and Ercole de‘ Roberti made for the Griffoni chapel of the church of S. Petronio, Bologna. The original predella, attributed to Ercole de’ Roberti, is in the Vatican Museums, Rome. It shows scenes from the life of Saint Vincent Ferrer, who joined the Dominicans (a religious order founded by Saint Dominic) in 1367, becoming a friar, preacher and missionary. He was canonised in 1455. The saint is the subject of the central panel of the altarpiece which is now in the National Gallery’s collection. The episodes show six of the saint’s miracles. Most involved healing the sick or injured or resuscitating the dead, and all are set against the backdrop of elaborate Renaissance-style architectural structures.
