Label Copy

Although this bishop saint and the similar panel of Saint Catherine of Siena (1950:39) were separated at some point in their history and came to the Museum from different donors, they are probably parts from a single altarpiece, for they show half-length saints at the same scale, and they include the same pattern of punchwork ornamentation in the haloes. The bishop saint is perhaps to be identified as Saint Sabinus, who like Saint Catherine is one of the patron saints of Siena. They are the work of Sano di Pietro. He was among the most prolific artists in early 15th-century Siena, fesponsible for illuminated manuscripts as well as devotional panels and altarpieces. Like many of his contemporaries in Siena, he tended to cast his figures in a timeless, almost archaic style, often against richly patterned gold backgrounds.
