OThe painting by Andrea Schiavone, and its complementary piece  the Elderly King David mirror eachother at the entrance door.

These two large paintings with golden backgrounds were  probably realised along with the other works by Schiavone and placed in the choir for decoration, historically dated in the fourth decade of the sixteenth-century.
