The Exaltation of the Holy Cross
Oil on canvas
Church of San Moisč, Venice
Wearing a small crown, St. Helena kneels in the foreground, to the left of the man who has been cured by the Cross. The figures in Franciscan habits on the upper left are St. Bernardino (holding a sunburst "IHS" standard) and St. Anthony of Padua (lily, beardless face, full circle of hair around the tonsure). St. Anthony Abbot, identified by the light brown tau on his black habit, stands below them and above Helena's left shoulder.
