The Temptation of Saint Anthony Abbot

Artist known as Master of the Osservanza

Italian (Siena) approximately 1435-40

One of the most admired narrative series in fifteenth-century Sienese painting comprises eight panels illustrating the legend of Saint Anthony Abbot, generally attributed to an anonymous artist known only as the Master of the Osservanza. Originally part of an altarpiece or large tabernacle, the series includes works now divided among museums in New York, Washington, D.C. , Berlin and New Haven (Yale). In this panel, Saint Anthony, retiring to a life of abstinence and isolation, is beset with temptations of the flesh. The wings of the seductress at the right identify her as a dissembling devil.

The original painting at 14 1/2 x 15 1/4 inches was painted with tempera on panel. The faithful Greenwich Workshop reproduction is on canvas, stretched and ready for framing.
