The Cloisters Collection, 2001 (2001.221)
This relief, with the standing image of the Dominican St. Peter Martyr (d. 1252) and three kneeling donors, is one of three marble panels to survive from a tomb in the Milanese church of Sant'Eustorgio. This panel was originally on the right of a central panel depicting the Enthroned Virgin and Child between two angels (Castello Sforzesco, Milan). Another relief showing St. John the Baptist and four kneeling donors, in a composition that mirrors this panel (Sant'Eustorgio, Milan), would have originally appeared on the left side.
