Presentation of the Virgin Mary in the Temple by Jacopo Tintoretto (1518-1594). Size 480 x 429. The painting was on the outside part of the doors in the old organ located in the Church. This painting is one of the masterpieces by Tintoretto, depicting the Virgin and child before the high priest Zaccaria, who is solemnly awaiting at the top of the fifteen steps going up to the Temple. The light, that illuminates half of the composition diagonally from left to right, gives the scene a great expressive power.
