Provenance (a) Chiesa di S. Zeno Maggiore, Verona, Italy, right wall.
Current repository S. Zeno Maggiore, Verona, Italy, public.
Condition history (a) The right half of the second scene is now gone.
Attribution history (a) Second Master of S. Zeno by Sandberg-VavalĂ , 1926. Many of the heads recall those in the fragments in the Museo Civico, and the figure of S. Nicholas in the first scene recurs twice in frescoes by the same master in S. Anastasia. The building is Giottesque in its general lines, but if the master was following Giottesque tradition here, he was very far from understanding the meaning of the work he was imitating; (b) Anonymous - 15th c. by Simeoni.
Subject (a) Unfortunate father with his three daughters, seated in a narrow low structure, curved like a letter "S", the gigantic S. Nicholas approaches to make his generous gift.
