This picture depicts the martyrdom of Peter, a Dominican Friar, on the road to Milan in 1252. As the assassin’s axe sliced his head, Peter reasserted his faith, writing ‘Credo’ (‘I believe’) in his blood. The woodcutters in the background symbolise the brutal cutting-off of Peter’s life. Even the trees bleed at his death. The basic composition and the four central figures derive from another painting of the same theme by Bellini (National Gallery, London)
