This Martyrdom of Saint Justina, the young Christian patrician of Padova, who was martyred in the 4th century, is today thought to be from Veronese's mature years during which sumptuous colour suggestions and a sophisticated theatrical atmosphere predominate. Previously in Roberto Canonici's collection in Ferrara, it was acquired by Cardinal Leopoldo from the Florentine merchant and collector Paulo del Sera in 1675. The work is documented in the Tribune of the Uffizi from 1675 to 1769.
