Description:
Francesco del Cossa (c. 1430 c. 1477)
Griffoni Polyptych: St Lucy
Tempera on panel, 1473
79 x 56 cm
National Gallery of Art, Washington, USA


This painting together with its counterpart representing St Florian belonged to the Griffoni Polyptych and were probably located on the upper part of the side panels.

A plant form with eyes held by the saint refers to the medieval legend that Saint Lucy, patron saint of eyesight, sacrificed her eyes for her Christian faith.
