According to the Golden Legend, Saint Christopher was known for his incredible height. When a small child asked him to help him cross a river, Christopher carried him over his shoulder, before the child revealed himself as Christ. Piazzetta, together with Tiepolo, is one of the most important figurative painters in eighteenth-century Venice, known for his religious compositions. Because of his particular painting technique many of Piazzetta’s painting are today in poor condition and the color balance is altered.
