Former Monastery of St. Augustine – The 1632 painted ceiling panels

0
Characterised by its two cloisters and the church, Sant'Agostino perfectly represents in a single room the richness and complexity of the pictorial decoration that can still be admired in Bergamo. In particular, the ceiling is of great importance, divided into no less than 1632 panels painted in tempera in the second half of the 15th century: there are the most diverse subjects, from simple animals to the Blessed of the Augustinian Order, and then prophets, saints, allegorical figures and decorations. On the high altar there is a polyptych by the so-called Maestro del 1458, partly kept at the Carrara Academy, one of the earliest examples of the penetration of the Renaissance language of the Foppesca matrix in the city.
