of an altarpiece, were painted around 1500 by David, who was the last of a series of Flemish artists

Gerard David's "Three Miracles
of St. Anthony of Padua," never
before shown in the United States,
are currently on display at The
Toledo Museum of Art.
The three arched ,wood panels
were obtained with the British;
government's special permission
from the Wantage collection.
They rank among the most im-
portant acquisitions made by any
American museum in recent years,
according to Otto Wittman, mu-
seum° director.
The , panels, which originally
formed part of an altarpiece in a
church dedicated to St. Anne,_
were painted between 1499 and
1511. They show St. Anthony rais-
ing a drowned child from the
water, kneeling with the mule of
the heretic Bovadilla in front of
the Eucharist, and preaching to
the fishes.'
Born in Holland
David, of whom comparatively
little is known, was born in Oude-
water, Holland, in 1460 and was
appointed town painter in Bruges,

where he did most of his painting,
and headed the painter's guild
four times, in 1494.
The last in a series of Flemish
artists to portray religious history
in realistic settings, he continued
in the Northern Renaissance style
which, unlike the Italian renova-
tion, preserved the medieval tra-

dition rather than turning to
norms of Greek and Roman excel-
"David's work is the culmina-
tion of late Gothic mystical real-
ism. Subjects which appear at
first to be scenes of everyday life
are transformed by an underlying
suggestion of the miraculous,"
Wittman explained.
Wear Brilliant Robes
"And the rich color and atti-
tude of his subjects are outsand-
ing in these paintings. Men wear
brilliant red and green robes,
there is a golden halo around the
lucharist and buildings are of
blues, pinks and grays."
Only 60 of David's paintings are
known to exist, 12 of which are
scenes of daily life. "These panels
are the last great early-Flemish
genre paintings to come out of
England," Wittman commented.
St. Anthony, who became the
chief patriarch of the Church
after the death of SS. Dominic
and Francis, and who was des-
cended from the leader of the first
crusade, became universally ven-
erated as a missionary whose
preaching was frequently con-
firmed by miracles.
