St Lawrence (d.258) appears with his attribute of a gridiron, the instrument of his martyrdom, while a gold crown and three palms form a prominent motif on his breast. St Bernardino (1380–1444), a famous Franciscan preacher and reformer, was a popular subject in Tuscan art. A plausible attribution has been recently suggested to Gherardo di Giovanni (di Miniato) del Fora (1445–1497), a painter and illuminator who maintained a workshop in Florence with his brothers.
