This panel depicts Saint Nicholas of Tolentino, a thirteenth-century mystic, and an unidentified bishop saint. It formed part of an altarpiece of which at least two other fragments are also in the National Gallery’s collection. It was positioned to the left of a central panel that depicts the Virgin and Child, opposite an image of Saints Bartholomew and Monica to the right.
A small panel with a scene from the saint’s life (now in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam) may have formed part of its lost predella (the part of an altarpiece below the main level, usually painted).
