Saint Chrysogonus

Michele Giambono, Saint Chrysogonus, 1450, Venice, Church of San Trovaso

The painting, in the chapel to the right of the high chapel of the Church of San Trovaso, portrays Crisogono, a Roman soldier and then bishop of Aquileia martyred under Diocletian. The saint is featured as a knight advancing on a horse and its elegant pose perfectly shows the late-Gothic elements typical of the painter’s training.
