This precious oil on copper depicts a portrait of St. Peter the Apostle with his hands joined to his body and the keys to Heaven, one in gold and the other in silver.

It is a painting of refined quality, an expression of that Florentine painting still dating back to the sixteenth century, with a style that evolves towards the Manner but which, devoid of the typical formal exaggerations, appears particularly dear to the environment of the Savonarolian monasteries and circles.

The painting, in particular, finds concrete stylistic correspondences with the works of those painters active around the so-called 'Scuola di San Marco', a current of Florentine art of the sixteenth century, which had as initiators such prominent personalities as Fra Bartolomeo and Mariotto Albertinelli . Among the notable followers we would like to mention Plautilla Nelli, born Polissena de 'Nelli (Florence, 1524 - 1588), whose creations show a good affinity with our rummy, such as her Santa Caterina da Siena always on copper. (Florence, Uffizi Galleries). Link:https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Plautilla_nelli_(attr.),_santa_caterina_da_siena,_su_rame_(uffizi).jpg

The clarity of the figures of the artists of the school of San Marco was a more direct presupposition for the elaboration of the canons of counter-reformed painting, in contrast instead with the 'eccentric' artists of full Mannerism, who can be considered the epigone of the school of Annunziata.

The stylistic characteristics, as well as the theme, treated bring us back to the works in particular
The work is in excellent condition.
