Antonello belonged to the outstanding artists of the Italien Early Renaissance. This painting was recently restored. It is a major work by Antonello, and an excellent example of Early Renaissance art. What is shown is not the suffering, but rather the transfigured martyr, who is convinced of his heavenly reward. The artist has skillfully used the subject to demonstrate his ability to paint the beauty of a nude human body.
