MARILYN ARONBERG LAVIN - The Joy of St. Francis: Bellini's Panel in the Frick Collection

The commission for Bellini's painting of St. Francis in the Frick Collection coincided with developments of the Observant movement in the Veneto in general, and, in particular, the refurbishing of the Franciscan convent in the Venetian lagoon on the Island of San Francesco del Deserto. This essay places the painting in this historical religious context in order to establish the meaning of its exceptional qualities of form and content.
